Willandra Homestead is a fine old rural homestead and a fantastic place to visit if you’re thinking of a historic site for a picnic or barbecue. Step into the past of a remote pastoral station which has been lovingly restored; wander through the sitting rooms and office, viewing the wonderful photographs and reading the accounts of life on the station.

On the beautifully-maintained grounds, with expansive gardens and a rose courtyard, you’ll also find the schoolhouse, meat house and laundry, giving you an idea of just how self-sufficient the inhabitants of this homestead had to be.

Why not enjoy a family barbecue on the lawns before continuing your exploration of Willandra National Park? The contrast between the ordered serenity of the homestead and the wild beauty of the region is amazing.
