Elizabeth Macarthur Avenue, Camden, Sydney
John and Elizabeth Macarthur established convict-built Belgenny Farm on part of the original 5000 acres granted to the family by Lord Camden in 1805.
Ranked among Australia's great agricultural pioneers, the Macarthurs established Merino wool production, wheat growing, dairying, horticulture and grape growing. These enterprises became a model for Australia's proud agricultural traditions.
Today, the property is a major educational centre with direct links to Australia's agricultural history – managed by Industry & Investment NSW (which includes the former NSW Department of Primary Industries) and the Belgenny Farm Trust.
It offers specialised educational and environmental tours, giving young people and special interest groups a chance to learn about agriculture and its history in NSW.
Located just an hour's drive south-west of Sydney at Camden, Belgenny Farm also offers a unique setting for weddings and other special occasions, and hosts a number of annual themed events.
It is a place where historical and modern-day agricultural practices and expertise come together to provide a family attraction that promises to entertain and educate.
For people living in Sydney and surrounding regions, it offers a special tourist attraction where they can enjoy a glimpse into agriculture's past.
