Get a feeling for the trials and tragedies of remote pioneering life with a visit to the restored homestead of the Sargent family.
The historic Blyth Homestead is found within Litchfield National Park, and is also the location of an old tin mine, which is now in ruins. The homestead site serves as a reminder of the tough conditions faced by pioneers in remote areas.
Built by the Sargent Family in 1929, the homestead was abandoned in the early 1960s. It has recently been restored and an interpretive display presents the trials and tragedies of this remote site. Please note that access to the homestead is by four-wheel drive only and may be inaccessible between November through to April due to the tropical season.
