History and character at Belgenny Farm

Belgenny Farm was established by John and Elizabeth Macarthur in 1805 and contains the earliest collection of colonial farm buildings in Australia. The property is a major educational centre with direct links to Australia's agricultural history and the picturesque setting it is also a popular venue for weddings and corporate events.


Schools enjoy a diverse range of hands-on curriculum based programs including the new Creamery Interpretative Centre. The Creamery showcases the dairy industry over the last 200 years and is supported by a virtual tour and online resources.

Events and weddings

Throughout the year, Belgenny hosts several open days as well as weddings and corporate events. With peaceful gardens, a rural landscape and historic farm buildings as your backdrop, Belgenny Farm offers a beautiful location with modern facilities.


The Macarthur’s pioneered Merino wool production, wheat growing, dairying, horticulture and grape growing at Belgenny. With the oldest operating farm buildings in Australia, this hidden treasure is one of only a few agricultural places listed on the State Heritage Register.
