Lanyon Homestead is one of Australia’s premier historic properties. Set at the foot of the Brindabella Ranges on the banks of the magnificent Murrumbidgee River; you will enjoy gorgeous views of the Australian countryside during your visit. The precinct’s centrepiece, the 1859 Homestead, has been beautifully restored and furnished.
Enjoy a guided tour of the homestead and explore the outbuildings that made this pastoral property a showpiece in the region. Picnic in the garden with a view to the hills beyond the Murrumbidgee River or take a leisurely stroll through the rambling gardens surrounding the homestead. Share a meal or light snack at the Barracks Espresso Bar and Eating House.
School and other groups are also catered for with special packages available that include a guided tour with morning/afternoon tea, or lunch included. Function rooms and outdoor spaces are available for hire.
Lanyon Homestead is easily accessible and is only a twenty minute drive from Canberra's city centre.

“Good food and great views”
Unbeatable views from the courtyard when the weather is fine and there's no wind. Otherwise, you have a choice of eating in a cosy dining area in the building or in an outdoor marquee.Read the full review on TripAdvisor

“A waste of a lovely location”
A lovely location. Avoide the cafe/restaurant. The view is stunning and the place looks implacable, "museum" is too basic and the restaurant needs major hygiene and service improvement. What a waste...Read the full review on TripAdvisor
