Slater Homestead Goomalling

A few weeks back whilst out on a Sunday drive, I had to do a double take when passing Slater Homestead in Goomalling. In years gone by it was home to the Slater Family and also a wayside inn from 1888 for pioneers and travellers. It is now a museum and tea room and has recently been renovated while still keeping it's old charm.  Sitting out side overlooking a paddock was an old piano. You never know what you are going to see along the roadsides out here. This on it's own was worth stopping for a photo but we ended up having  a cup of tea and  scone after looking through the old house.
Linking today with Theresa's Good Fences because there is a fence of sorts



The old barn (below) is now a popular function centre

  8. I would have stopped to upon seeing that Piano sitting out in the open like that. This sounds like a neat place to visit. I really liked the railing over that little ditch in the 4th shot. Also that cute sheep decoration. So glad you stopped and shared this fun place.
