Built in 1883 by the Campbell family, Kilburnie Homestead is the birthplace of local artist Ruby Campbell. Nowadays, Kilburnie Homestead is an operational cattle station with added history, art & music displays and open days…..and perhaps a ghost or two!! Make sure you get along to one of the open days for a taste of what’s on offer. It truly is an amazing experience.
