Photograph - Ellendale homestead (c. 1880)

This photograph shows the homestead, which faces Bullock Creek about 100 metres away through what appears to be a small orchard. Numerous people can be seen but it is not possible to identify any. The building at the rear probably included a kitchen.

The main building still exists (2012) although it has long been abandoned as a dwelling. It can be seen on Google Maps at Latitude: 36.710231 S; Longitude: 144.122665 E.
