Toorale Homestead walk is in the Toorale Homestead precinct of Toorale National Park, near Bourke. Enjoy a short stroll around the heritage-listed homestead and its historic buildings.
This easy 200m loop walk follows a gravel path through the Toorale Homestead precinct, known to the Kurnu-Baakandji People as Yarramarra, which means ‘tree’ and ‘hand’.
Step back in time as you stroll among the best, most extensive surviving examples of historic pastoral buildings in NSW’s far western region. A highlight is Toorale Homestead, built in 1896 as a wedding present to Samuel McCaughey’s favourite niece, Louisa Robinson. The motor garage, blacksmith’s shop and farrier’s hut offer a rich glimpse into the technology of a bygone era.
Remember to enjoy these buildings from the outside only. To enter, you’ll need to book a NPWS guided tour.
