The Farmyard (Coolart Historic Area)


The Farmyard (Coolart Historic Area)

From the Coolart Homestead, take a pleasant stroll to the Farmyard. The Farmyard offers scenic views over a rural landscape.

Spend time exploring the old shearing shed and investigating farm machinery used for agriculture in the early 1900s. Wander through the nearby Stables, built in the 1860s from bricks hand-made on the property.
