Martindale Hall Heritage Museum, Mintaro

Designed in the Georgian style and completed in 1880, Martindale Hall Heritage Museum still includes most of its original furniture and fittings. Built for a wealthy sheep farmer, this mansion reminds modern visitors of the luxury once enjoyed by the region’s rich families. Past owners built up an impressive collection of artwork, most of which is still on display inside the museum. Situated within a large conservation park, the property also includes a sheep station, which is still intact and active. Make a brief stop to see the museum’s art collection, or arrange to stay at this well-preserved historical landmark, which offers accommodation for up to 18 visitors.

  • A very interesting place to visit and absorb its history. However, a private concern needs to update the offering to maximise its return and allow necessary improvements. For example, a detailed website linked to a smart phone App could make the visit more informative and enrich the experience of Martindale Hall. A small download fee for the App could cover costs and provide an extra revenue stream while the same caretaker arrangements are maintained.
  • Lovely heritage home. An ode to English country Manors
  • Great piece of history, Picnic at Hanging Rock was filmed here. If you like history, this place is awesome..
  • Excellent example of a bygone era. Pityt the coach house was closed although it looks like a work in progress
  • Very beautiful building and History rich interior . I wish I can stay there for a day .
