Saumarez Homestead, a historic country homestead and ten-hectare property, was first inhabited by British settlers led by Henry Dumaresq in the 1830s. Today it includes an elegant, fully furnished Edwardian mansion, built between 1888 and 1906, and 15 farm and other buildings dating up to 1910, with their collections of early farm equipment.
In 1874 the property was purchased by Francis White, whose eldest son, Francis John White took over management, spending his life developing Saumarez and its associated holdings into one of the largest and most successful rural properties of New England.
Bring a picnic and enjoy a stroll through the extensive English-style gardens and Mary White's garden, with its Jocelyn Brown-style cottage garden, the picking garden, lawns and Heritage Rose Garden with over 600 heritage roses, which is looked after by the Australian Garden History Society.

Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
