Cultural heritage at Tocal

The Tocal property has a long history and evidence remaining across the site tells us about the people who have lived and farmed here.

We see evidence of Tocal as the ancestral home of the Wonnarua people; we see evidence of the changes wrought on the property as Europeans settled here; of the hard times of drought, fire, flood and devastating storms; and of the passing of generations and the need to sell up and move on. Tocal also speaks of the changing faces of rural Australia and the resilience of Australian farmers. People who visit, or live and work here often express a strong connection to the property.
