Past Event
Find out the history of the earliest days of rural settlement on a visit to Beulah, an old pioneering farming estate near Appin.

One of the earliest land grants in the Campbelltown area, Beulah features a magnificent 50 hectare stand of the endangered Cumberland Plan Woodland and shale forest ecosystem. At the end of a long gravel drive sits a ruined colonial bungalow (c1831) and timber outbuildings - the remnants of a pioneering farm estate from the earliest days of settlement outside Sydney.

Join owners and experts to tour this heritage property rarely opened to the public.
