Lanyon is one of Australia's most historic grazing properties. The homestead dates from the 1850s and has been beautifully restored and furnished. It is set within superb pleasure gardens. The land was occupied by Aborigines for millennia and by European pastoralists for over 160 years. Sheep, cattle and horses still graze on the timbered hills and fertile banks of the Murrumbidgee river.
