Information

After many years of neglect (we heard some yarns about that), the famous Dunlop Station Homestead (1886) & 4 paddocks totalling 2,000acres and 5.5klm of river front, was purchased at auction by some unsuspecting people. When they discovered its heritage importance they have redoubled their efforts at restoration. The son has done a beautiful looking job on the fences and the house is making good progress. The old store is OK, but the huge shearing shed is a sorry sight still, and quite depressing to behold.
The new owners are not yet making a living off the property, but they are planning to develop a "farm stay" business in the near future.
We made a nuisance of ourselves on a Sunday morning in Nov 2017, but were welcomed in and shown around. A wonderful property with a great future at last.
