Visit historic Newstead North homestead, garden and shearing shed. Newstead is one of the oldest surviving homesteads and garden in the Inverell Shire. The shearing shed is immortalised in Australian artist Tom Roberts painting The Golden Fleece 1894 (Art Gallery of NSW).
The tour outlines the history of the property from 1838. The homestead is unfurnished, however, interpretation panels created by the New South Wales Historic Houses Trust and extensive private collections provide information and photographs to help tell the stories of the Anderson and Bucknell families who owned and operated the property between 1841 and 1980.
