Since 1836, Millamolong Station has not only been famous for its undulating hills and the beautiful Belubula River but also for its rich pastoral and mining history.
In the Aboriginal language, Millamolong literally means “Sick Man Creek” as ill indigenous people used to travel long distances to drink the water and recover. Rich in calcium and magnesium, plus other diluted minerals, the water is reputed to have great healing powers.
Millamolong Station is well known for its fine 1930s homestead and beautifully landscaped Edna Walling garden. The property’s history includes its timeless Aboriginal heritage, the gold rush, the bushrangers, the wool boom and the Cowra breakout of Japanese prisoners during World War II.
Add to this the Ashton family’s polo tradition and the life of a busy working station with thousands of sheep, cattle and, more recently, a vineyard, Millamolong offers interest and activities for everyone.
If you enjoy sporting activities, there is horse riding, tennis, mustering, fishing along 16 kms of the Belubula River, mountain biking as well as the opportunity to learn to play or to improve your polo.
For those wanting simply to rest and relax, there are the vineyard, swimming, a tranquil garden, open fires in winter and, most importantly, delicious food and wine. The fully serviced homestead offers generously appointed double rooms (some with ensuite bathrooms) for up to 18 guests. Delicious meals are included with an emphasis on gourmet country cuisine. Millamolong is fully licensed and offers a superb range of local and other quality wines.
The historic slab farmhouse has 10 rooms and is perfect for groups of friends or breaks for big families, and encompasses The Old Post Office, built in the 1840s, and The Farmhouse Cottage. The bedrooms can be converted to bunk or double rooms and, as an alternative to self-catering, farmhouse guests may like to enjoy some meals at the homestead during their stay.
