Mamma can't hide it. She is a bit of a history buff. Plus, when the story is about the happenings in our backyard it is hard to resist taking it all in.
Gulf Station is a little slice of pioneer heritage from the 'good ol' days' in Yarra Glen. The heritage listed property is just stunning and a farm frozen in time. From the original home of the Bell family, to the machinery sheds full of rusty gold and the working horses in the fields, it is really like stepping back into the 1850s. The National Trust open the gates to this property once in a blue moon and they put on a ripper of a show, with house tours, bush poetry, a sausage sizzle, Clydesdale demonstrations and some sheep herding on the hill.
OPEN DAY: It is this weekend. Saturday Ocotber 13th with the Victorian Working Draught Horse Association, Gulf Station will be open from 10m - 4pm. It is set to be a lovely day out on the property especially with garden in full bloom. Click here for all the details.
Mamma's special mentions: The dedicated group of volunteers that look after this property tell Mamma that besides special open days, they will have the gates open on the first Thursday of the month, 10am to 2pm.
