A short five minute drive from the hotel is Elizabeth Farm, a rare example of an early Australian colonial bungalow built in 1793 for John and Elizabeth Macarthur, pioneers of the Australian wool industry.
Elizabeth Farm is a unique museum that allows visitors to experience life in the early 1800s through open rooms and 'hands on' experiences. The homestead's deep shaded verandahs overlook a beautiful recreated colonial garden containing trees from the first years of settlement – including Australia's oldest European olive tree.
