Nice morning out at Elizabeth Farm.
Sinister (9yo) & friend researching culinary and medicinal farming around 1850 in rural Australia. I'm just disappointed they didn't have the billy on in the kitchen.

Elizabeth Farm is a 'living museum' in Sydney, showcasing the original homestead of wool pioneers John and Elizabeth MacArthur.
