Murchison House Station is pleased to offer a self guided walking tour around the homestead buildings and morning tea for you to enjoy.
Wander at leisure through the original cottage built by Charles von Bibra in 1858 and see the convict built shearers quarters (circa 1860). Soak up the history and take the opportunity to “tread the boards” of one of W.A’s oldest shearing sheds. Children will enjoy meeting the ever changing collection of farm animals that live around the homestead.
A surprising collection of military vehicles, earthmoving equipment, vintage cars and farm machinery is scattered around the homestead and outlines the development of Murchison House from 1860 to the present day. An easy wander will lead you to the station cemetery. Here you will find several graves, some marked by impressive headstones, others not marked at all.
When you're ready morning tea is served in the beautiful setting of the homestead gardens overlooking the Murchison River.
Price includes morning tea and a souvenir booklet.
