Australia's National Trusts Historic Homesteads - Reprint



Product Description

Hardback. Good Condition.


Of all Australia's historic buildings the homestead most truly reflects the nation's foundational and early developmental period. 

The Australian homestead - often a complex of buildings, containing the living-quarters and outbuildings of a rural property - has always been a unique and diverse style of building.

Chronologically, the coverage extends from 1794 (Elizabeth Farm, Parramatta), through the early and mid-1800s to the wealthy graziers' homes of the late 19th century. Stylistically, the homesteads range from the functional and individual properties of outback Queensland and Western Australia, through the classical, simple architecture found in many of the Tasmanian and New South Wales buildings, to the grandiose mansions of the Western Districts of Victoria and of South Australia. 

This diversity is perhaps the most fascinating of the many elements that combine to make this volume a major contribution to the published record of Australia's heritage.
