Celebrating 150 Years of Carnamah's Macpherson Homestead

The family of Duncan and Mary Macpherson shifted to Carnamah in 1868. The family of ten initially squeezed into a three room cottage near the Yarra Yarra Lakes before building a much larger homestead Carnamah House in 1869. 

Carnamah House, now known as the Macpherson Homestead. is turning 150 years old in 2019. The homestead is located one kilometre east of the Carnamah townsite via a sign-posted driveway off the Bunjil-Carnamah Road.

A series of activities are occurring over Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of May to mark 150 years of this Carnamah landmark.
