Slater homestead

The historic Slater Homestead was the first development in the area, built in 1856 by George Slater.

The Shire of Goomalling acquired the iconic homestead in 2000, and the following completion of conservation plan the Homestead was considered and entered into the state heritage register of heritage places. Restoration commenced in 2002 and the delightfully refurbished buildings are now open to visitors on the weekend.

The iconic stone barn with its rustic charm offers a unique venue for weddings, special occasions, corporate events or family gatherings, with a manicured lawn and gardens completing the picture. Wedding ceremonies can be held under the 150 year old Peppercorn trees or in other areas of the grounds, all providing a romantic backdrop to capture memories of your special occasion.

The historic homestead accommodation provides visitors with an ‘early world experience’ in the delightfully refurbished double room in the main homestead and the queen room in the old school masters residence.

Mary’s Tearooms offers devonshire teas and light lunches, catering for small groups, with seating available for 16. Group bookings are encouraged.

Guests share homestead facilities and meals are available by arrangement.
