Set within superb gardens the Lanyon includes an historic homestead and outbuildings sited within a working rural property.

Sheep and cattle still graze on the timbered hills and fertile banks of the Murrumbidgee river.

Admission includes a guided tour of the Homestead.

Lanyon also offers a range of exciting community and learning programs and special events.

We also provide unique venues for weddings, anniversaries and other celebrations.

The enticing Lanyon Cafe has spectacular views and is a popular destination for week day luncheons and a weekend breakfast.
