A piece of history.
This piece of Western Australia’s history on The Moore River, North of Perth, boasts one of the very few settler’s cottages which is renovated into a 4×2 home.
“Woodbine Estate” is where Mr and Mrs Bandy settled after they arrived by boat from England in the 1800s. Back in those days they only selected the best properties to develop a self-sufficient lifestyle. This is a prime example of the yesteryear’s.
“Woodbine Estate” is located half an hour north of Gingin. It is alleged that the aged timber to build part of Woodbine cottage came from the cargo of the “Seabird” (ship) which ran aground at Wedge Island. The timber was collected along the beach at Ledge Point and carted along the old coast track to what was to become “Woodbine Estate”.
Mr and Mrs Bandy and their family contributed so much to the development of the Moore River.
“Woodbine Estate” today is a great example of Western Australia heritage, fully renovated and maintained to this day. Home to a great country lifestyle and perennial pastures.
It’s these kind of historic properties that really bring out our passion for the country.
There is only one river north of Perth under 1 hour. The next is in Dongara another 2 hours away.
The Woodbine Estate has something special (not historically listed) with a character 4×2, plus 2×2 transportable accommodation, natural bubbling springs, permanent fresh water lake, billabongs, creek, river, bore, machinery shed, paddocks.
