Heritage

History of The Cedars, Kangaroo Valley

Since settlement in the 1860’s, The Cedars’ land has been used primarily for agricultural purposes. The property first came into being at this time following an original land grant of 226 acres.

In those days the farm was entirely self-sufficient and the family ran dairy cattle for milk and cheese, sheep for wool and meat, pigs and poultry, as well as an orchard and a comprehensive vegetable garden. Collecting water from the creeks on drays pulled by bullocks was a day’s job on its own. The area has always been one of the original sources of Australian cedar timber, driven to market by bullock- teams. There are still many fine cedar trees standing throughout the property.

Today, The Cedars is over 1,000 acres in area which straddles the Barrengarry Creek and is enveloped by the Morton and Buderoo National Parks. Still a working farm and home to the famous Australian Shire Draught horses, The Cedars’ land continues to be managed as a highly successful cattle-breeding enterprise producing prime veal for the domestic market.

Reviews

This is a stunning place. The Yurt faces one of Australia’s loveliest valleys. The high escarpment to the east is brilliant to watch the passing sun rays through the afternoon, while tending to the fire pit. We loved making sustained and impressive echos by shouting koo-ee.
