Step back in time to the days of the early pioneers on a fascinating tour of historic Oakabella Homestead, established as a working farm in 1860. On this half-day adventure for the whole family, explore the beautifully restored 13-room main house, cookhouse, stables and blacksmith shop. The unique, two-buttressed barn serves as a museum, where you can get an up-close look at an intriguing collection of heritage artifacts and farm machinery, items early settlers of Western Australia used in their day-to-day life. Outside, the landscape is equally amazing, with stunning views of Elephant Hill and Table Hill as well as an ancient gorge and a seasonal waterfall.
Then, it?s on to Burnt Barrel for some mouthwatering, ?low and slow? smoked barbecue. Enjoy a tasting plate of meats smoked to perfection, some for up to 16 hours. Plus enjoy samples of beer and cider crafted at their onsite microbrewery.
