During the early 1800’s, Lanyon was at the very limits of European occupation—it was an isolated, but self-sufficient and busy place. Many of Lanyon’s buildings date back to this time, some of them built by convicts assigned to the property. When planning your visit, allow a couple of hours to enjoy a tour of the Homestead, stroll through the outbuildings and gardens that made the home and property function, and enjoy a meal at The Barracks.
Open: Wednesday to Sunday 10am-4pm
