Homestead Dining Room Features

May 9, 2010

Following on with my posts about historic Greenmount Homestead in the far north of Queensland in Australia.

See if you can find these gorgeous features in my photos. 

  • Pressed metal ceilings in each room display a different pattern.
  • English Oak dining suite believed to have come from England in 1837 when the original family members immigrated to Australia.
  • Australian Bentwood rocking chair near the dining table.
  • Pair of silver ice buckets won in 1886 by Tom Cook’s horse, named Invader, at the Narrabri Jockey Club in New South Wales.
  • Silky Oak mantlepiece relocated from the Cook’s original property at Balnagowan.
  • Photographs and portraits of generations of the Cook family.
