Olivewood

The focal point is the original Chaffey homestead built in 1889, using a unique pine log method of construction. The house has been tastefully furnished and decorated with period artefacts. In addition the original fruit packing shed houses a great collection of old style tools and implements as used in the early days of what was the first irrigation settlement in Australia. A comprehensive museum of local memorabilia including aboriginal artefacts is also maintained.

Collections

Inside the house, fruit packing shed and separate museum, is a large collection of local items with many photographs that give visitors a very good insight into the early days of the irrigation colony and information about the major events in the progress of the area since then.
