Holiday music from Lanyon's past
12–2pm

Musicians, led by Dr Jennifer Gall, will recreate the musical sounds of a living homestead. Hear how the verandah is animated by the kind of music that would have been heard there in the early days of settlement on the Monaro: songs from the Old Country and from the bush representing the workers on the property.

Beyond the homestead tour
10–11am, 1–2pm and 2.30–3.30pm

Join a walking tour of the outbuildings and gardens and discover the stories hidden within them. Venture into the homestead to discover the way of life for the pioneers who established and developed the property.

$7 adults, $5 concession, $15 family. Limited places available, buy your ticket from the homestead on the day.
