Terrick Terrick Station

At the start of the school holidays we attended an open day at Terrick Terrick Station.  It was an event run by the local historical society.   It's one of those properties you always drive past and wonder what is at the end of the long driveway.  
The house is set in a beautiful bush garden on the Bullock creek.  The house was flooded last year but had been restored. Donald and Elizabeth McGauchie were giving guided tours inside their house on the day which we were lucky enough to go through early.  There was a huge queue by the afternoon. 

There were also craft displays and stalls.  
One lady had her collection of miniature sewing machines on display.

Another lady makes these exquisite embroidered bunnies.  She had a whole table set up with bunnies in fields with embroidered mushrooms, flowers, baby bunnies asleep in leaves. So pretty. 

These was a grand parade of old time farm machinery and horse drawn wagons.

The kids had loved this horse called Katie who gave them a ride around the paddock.

The old shearer's quarters would make a fabulous house all on their own!  
It was good chance to learn some more local history and sneak a peak of a local historic property.
So all round, a really good day spent with the family and Grandma and Grandpa.
