Information

Seaton's Farm is quietly nestled at the base of Berthas Gully, on a scenic pastoral block within Weddin Mountains National Park. No drinking water available here. No dogs allowed. The site is a short walk from the Ben Hall Campground or you can drive and park at the site.

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. In 1936, the Seaton family began developing property on the western side of the Weddin Mountains as a pastoral enterprise. Money and resources were scarce during the Great Depression, so the farm was built using second-hand materials fashioned into solid structures. Seaton's Farm is a testimony to the ingenuity used by the Seatons when times were tough. It provides brilliant insight into how this farming family lived during the mid-1900s.

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.
