Holey Plains Homestead – Gippsland

Holey Plains Homestead at Rosedale in Gippsland is one of the region’s finest and oldest Homesteads. The Crooke family have lived in the homestead since 1880 when it was built using handmade bricks made at the property.
The homestead features an 85ft tower that provides a fine first impression as you enter the main gates. Surrounding the homestead is a traditionally laid out garden, featuring many roses, water features and perennial garden beds.

The homestead also features a central courtyard flanked by the original staff quarters and scullery.
Every second year the homestead and garden is opened to the public during the Gippsland Heritage Festival. Edward and Thea Crooke are the current custodians of Holey Plains Homestead.
