Yurunga Homestead

The railway came to Rainbow in 1898 and with it came prosperity to the town and surrounding area.

Part of that prosperity was the establishment of Yurunga, a beautiful homestead built in 1909 to impress the people of Rainbow. And all these years later, it still impresses.

Wander the gardens and get a strong sense of what it was like for the early owners in those pioneering days. A house that guests could admire.

Outside, the gardens and coach house tell their own story, and the site where the croquet green once stood reminds us of the social gatherings Yurunga was renowned for.

An underground living room to beat the hot weather was often used by the nearby hospital to give some respite from the heat.

Discover the secret to staying cool for these early pioneers who were living in what at times was a harsh environment.

Do not miss this gem if you are planning a visit to the area.
