The grand Eynesbury Homestead provides a window to Australia’s rich pastoral past. Neighbouring the golf course, this 150-year-old homestead has been lovingly and faithfully restored, featuring high ceilings, fireplaces, and beautifully landscaped gardens. There are also many other heritage-listed buildings nearby, such as the old bluestone stables that are now the Golf Pro Shop.
The Homestead is the heart of Eynesbury and is a destination in itself. Here, residents and visitors meet to relax, celebrate and enjoy a meal amongst friends. It features a fully functioning restaurant and bar and a café and in its own right, attracts visitors from both near and far.
