Historic Byramine Homestead, was built in 1842 by famous explorer Hamilton Hume for his sister-in-law Elizabeth and her nine children after her husband John was killed by bushrangers.

The homestead was designed by an English architect for use in India and built on a beautiful site by a lagoon on low sand hills, forested in Pine.

The most unique aspect of the home is the octagonally shaped central room called the fortress, which is was designed to provide a clear view of all angles in case of attach from bushrangers or aboriginals.

Pine from the river forest was used for woodwork including the the ceilings, beams, floors, shutters and shingles.

Elizabeth named her home 'Bryamine', meaning 'rustic retreat'.
