Australia National Trust Historic Homesteads

Large hardback, 1982, 588pages, very good condition, price clipped

The Australian homestead-often a complex of buildings containing the living-quarters and outbuildings of a rural property - has always been a unique and diverse style of building. In this book, over forty outstanding and historicallly-important homesteads from all over Australia are described and extensively illustrated. Chronologically, the coverage extends from 1794 (Elizabeth Farm, Parramatta), through the early and mid-1880s to the wealthy graziers' homers of the late 19th century. Stylistically, the homesteads range from the functional and individual properties of outback Queensland and Western Australia, throuhh the classical, simple architecture found in many of the Tasmanian and New South Walesbuildings, to the grandiose mansions of the Western Districts of Victoria and of South Australia.

This volume gathers together for the first time the aspirations and much of the architectual legacy of many of Australia's leading pioneer families. In so doing, it fulfils a number of aims - to display some on the finest and most distinctive buildings of early Australia, and, at the same time, to be a reminder that Australia has both a history and a heritage.
