Blyth Homestead

The historic Blyth Homestead is found in Litchfield National Park.

The homestead site serves as a reminder of the tough conditions faced by pioneers in remote areas.

Built by the Sargent Family in 1929, who also built and operated a tin mine nearby, 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 is regularly inaccessible between November and April due to the tropical season.
