Homestead ToursGuided tours of Tocal Homestead heritage site and Tocal College farms make the perfect day out for seniors and special interest groups
A two hour guided tour of the heritage site will entertain the visitor with stories of the characters and activities at Tocal over the past 200 years. See the barn the Colonial Architect designed, hear about a lad who went on to become Captain Thunderbolt and learn about a wealthy businessman’s vision to change the lives of destitute children.
The tour can be extended to see the unique architecture of Tocal Agricultural College and then an informative guided bus tour around the working enterprises on the Tocal farms. Travelling around the picturesque farm, visitors see Angus beef cattle, sheep, working horses, the dairy and at times, the free range hens. Lunch is included with the guided tour and is a traditional farmer’s baked dinner, with dessert and tea or coffee, served in the College Dining Hall.
