Seaton's Farm is quietly nestled at the base of Berthas Gully, on a scenic pastoral block within Weddin Mountains National Park.
Historic farm buildings, machinery and equipment still litter this pretty landscape. The relics demonstrate how one exceptionally resourceful farming family lived through the Great Depression during the 1930s.
The architecture is fascinating and the use of local, second-hand materials to create farming buildings is a testament to the ingenuity of this clan.
Signs are available for the enthusiastic amateur historian, and you can even lay out a picnic blanket and sit under the shade relaxing and reflecting.
Don’t be surprised if eastern grey kangaroos and swamp wallabies visit alongside you; they’re often seen hopping through the remnants of Bertha Seaton’s garden. Autumn and spring are the best times to visit, when temperatures are comfortable and the area bristles with wildlife.
