During the period 1894 to 1936 at the Nyerimilang property, the farm caretaker's family lived in a small four room wooden shack a few hundred metres away from the main homestead.
There was a strong divide kept between the Stuart family, their servants and farm hands. Living conditions in the farm shack were a far cry from the comforts enjoyed in the Nyerimilang homestead.
The farm caretaker and his family were permitted to do some recreational fishing in the Gippsland Lakes during their spare time. But they were always required to present their catch to the Stuart family, who took first pick.
Today you can take a look through the old farmer's shack, shearing sheds and other farm buildings. Some of the historic farm equipment and wagons remain.
