Byramine Homestead celebrated 175 years this weekend.

Built in 1842 this 4 bedroom home has a unique central octagonal shaped room, called the fortress, which was designed to provide a view of all angles in case of attack from bushrangers.

It is located near Yarrawonga in northern Victoria alongside the Murray River.

    1. It is actually the oldest rural house in Victoria.

  2. Aside from the chimneys, it looks quite modern. Keeping a lookout for bushrangers does make it very old.

  3. A quintessential farm house. And how I love that deep veranda. All the way round?

    1. Made from brick and Murray Pine which is resistant to termites and probably why it's still standing today.
