A once magnificent homestead, that one day will hopefully be restored to its former glory…

    It’s tragic that wonderful old buildings such as this are not better preserved.

      Apparently some work to stabilise it has been done recently. But it should never have got to the state of disrepair it is in…

    I love Oz. Live there during the 70s. A magnificent country.

    Nice pic. I wonder what that smaller screened in building/hut was used for?

      This is actually a shot from the rear, and the outside hut would have been used for meat storage….

        I wondered if it were for meat. Could hang a lot in that!

    Hunh; started me thinking about “A Town Like Alice.” Maybe I’ll watch that tonight … perhaps for the next several nights!

      A great movie Chris, so enjoy, actually have a long row coming up tonight, but maybe I’ll just listen to music!

      The tragedy of Toorale House is that it was left to decay by its Corporate owners. It is now in the hands of the National Parks, but the cost of restoring means it will be some time away. This is truly a magnificent example of “homesteads” from the 1800s…

      Cheers Baz
