Elmsbury Homestead, NSW

The Elmsbury Homestead sits in a back field in the farming area of the south central NSW Tablelands. Like most abandoned farmhouses, this was left to ruin as the result of a newer residence built elsewhere on a rural property.

Discarded farmhouses can be found in all corners of the New South Wales landscape. Often re-utilised as storage spaces for agricultural tools, many remain furnished, creating an unintentional vintage time capsule. Speaking of lives once devoted to herding and harvesting, these humble spaces reflect the state’s numerous flirtations with various post-colonial housing periods. From war-time, to more recent architectural movements, their soft pastel walls and pressed tin ceilings usually remain intact.
