Next door to where we stayed is Dunlop station, the original large station in the district. It was an amazing 1,000,000 acres in size, since broken up.
This photo shows the homestead built by the first owner. It was large and palatial with many bedrooms despite the owner being single. Out there he even had big fancy gates.
When the current owner bought the place it was very dilapidated. The previous owner was a hoarder and had down little maintenance. The water supply had failed so she carried water by buckets from the river. There was no working stove and very little electricity.
Every room was full of old stuff.
The building on the right contained an outdoor bathroom and a school room. The shack in the left background was for gardener's accommodation.
The current owner has stabilised the building but much more work is needed.
In the WS are a photo of the dining room , still with peeling paint and a cracked wall. Also one of a wall where the rooms behind have long since collapsed.
