Information

A one-time sheep farming homestead set in 59,305 acres. The 1851-built farmhouse, retains its original Flinders region settler lines. Originally, it was two cottages and later was joined together with a building between the two. Since then the ‘bones’ of the homestead have remained the same.


Now owned as a private wildlife conservancy and luxury tourism destination, the owners put in place successful conservation programs across the property, focussing primarily on feral species eradication and reversing the effects of years of 150 years of livestock grazing. In 2010 sheep stock were removed from two-thirds of the property, the last of the these sheep were removed in September 2013.

The Homestead features pressed metal ceilings, cool flagstone floors beneath shady verandahs, small library, open fires for frosty winters and 5 bedrooms with sisal-covered bedroom floors.

Views of the Elder Range, with Arkaba Hill can be seen from the Moralana Scenic Drive. The Heysen Trail also passes through this area.
