Belgenny Farm Creamery


Camden Park House, which was built in 1835-36, is considered one of the finest examples of colonial architecture in Australia. The house was designed by John Verge, who was one of the most important architects in colonial New South Wales. The house is a two-story brick building with a stuccoed facade and cast-iron verandahs. The interior of the house features fine plasterwork and cedar joinery. The house is surrounded by extensive gardens that were originally designed by the noted landscape architect, John Bidwill.

Camden Park was also an important center for the breeding of merino sheep. John Macarthur was instrumental in developing the merino breed in Australia, and Camden Park was one of the most important merino studs in the country. The estate was also a major producer of wine, with John Macarthur importing grapevines from Europe and experimenting with different varieties. Camden Park wine won awards at international exhibitions in the mid-19th century.

Today, Camden Park is still owned by the Macarthur family, and the house and gardens are open to the public for tours. The Belgenny Farm site is also open to visitors, and features a number of historic buildings and displays related to the history of agriculture in the area.
