About this assessment
The Australian Heritage Council found the Woolmers homestead group (established on an 1817 land grant) is nationally significant for the evidence it provides of the use of an assigned convict labour force in the development of a pastoral property. Woolmers is outstanding for the longevity of ownership in one family. The Council found that the buildings, artefacts, and records that survive on the estate offer an important insight into the evolution of a working farm and estate over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries.
In some cases the Minister will have made amendments to such matters as boundaries, values and descriptions, before listing the place. For final listing data visit the Australian Heritage Database or the National Heritage Listing for Woolmers Estate .
