Old Warrah huts.

The original farm headquarters for the Australian Agricultural Companies Warrah station was at 'Old Warrah', now owned by the Geoff Symonds family. The original homestead on the site was burnt down in 1896, and there is no remains left. However there is a few other buildings remaining, and they are worth a look. Warrah Station was then moved to it's present site, the other side of Warrah Creek, and a new homestead, sheering shed and other infrastructure built.

The southern hut.

There are two shingle roof huts still remaining although falling down. Also a small dairy shed and a single mens quarters building.

The northern most hut.

When the original homestead burnt down in 1896, there seems to be some disagreement about where the next homestead was built. Some say it was built on the same site. However some say it was moved to the current site on the hill over the creek, and then this homestead burnt down, and was then replaced with the current homestead that still stands today.
