Old Australian Homesteads

My dream is simple - to be able to capture the style and grandeur of the homesteads that were built in the mid 1800's to early 1900's.

Brindabella Station via Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

This home was owned by Thomas & Annie Franklin - it would be wonderful to see what the homestead looks like now.

Yathalla Park homestead, Yathella, New South Wales, ca. 1910

How grand would it be to be able to live in this magnificent home, beautiful wrought iron detail on the verandah that would have stretched around the home. I hope that it still stands.
