Belgenny Farm is the ideal location for groups of all sizes wanting to enjoy the beautiful green spaces and unique structures of the site while learning more about the history of Australian agriculture, and the innovative ways John and Elizabeth Macarthur and their family farmed the area that at the time was all open grassland and in now one of the fastest growing development areas in NSW, and only one hour from Sydney CBD.
Belgenny Farm is unique as it holds the oldest set of intact farm buildings in Australia: the ‘Home Farm’ of the Macarthur dynasty. Originally granted to John Macarthur in 1805 and managed by John and wife Elizabeth, it has been home to a succession of agricultural innovators for over 200 years.
