STORY OF OUR HOMESTEAD
Located in the Wrattonbully Wine Region, 15 min drive to the Naracoorte World-Heritage listed caves, the historic Narracoorte homestead is the who's who of the townships' forefathers - George Ormerod, William MacIntosh and Thomas Magarey, names synonymous with the main streets and buildings of Naracoorte each built impressive dwellings on the property previously known as Naracoorte Station, the regions' premier Sheep Run from 1842 through to early 1900’s. The property is also home to two identified Indigenous scarred trees - one identified to be 500 years old, and a magnificent Moreton Bay Fig, as well as hidden lavender-lined pathways, and Ormerod Cottage featuring a romantic private garden.
Authentic 1890's setting, an exclusive experience staying in the oldest dwelling in the township of Naracoorte.
