The Homestead

Our historic homestead holds a special place in our hearts. Over 100 years old, it is the original family home and has been lovingly restored. Generations of Skerrett’s have been born and raised within it’s walls and Tim’s father Brian lived there for all of life and always maintained that he never wanted to live anywhere else. Located right across the road from the Mulla Mulla Creek, you are able to fall asleep at night to the sound of the water bubbling along and to enjoy a cup of tea on the verandah while watching the sunrise over the hills is a real treat!

Take your time exploring the history of the house and the history of the property from the assorted artworks and nostalgia scattered throughout the Homestead
