McCrae Homestead and Galleries

McCrae Homestead and GalleriesBuilt by Andrew and Georgiana McCrae in 1844, McCrae Homestead is one of Victoria's oldest homesteads and is a physical reminder of the early pioneering life, using locally available materials and primitive construction techniques.

Georgiana was an accomplished artist, musician and diarist. Her beautiful sketches are housed in the gallery beside the original homestead which contains the rare collection of 19th Century family heirlooms and artworks.
