About Carcory Homestead Ruins

The Carcory Homestead was built in 1877 of local limestone by Hector and Norman Wilson. Listed by the National Trust, this attraction is an example of the rich history of the Diamantina Shire. It was abandoned by Sir Sydney Kidman after battling extreme drought in the early 1900s. Today it is part of Roseberth Station, serves as a reminder of early settlement in the area and attracts tourists with its intriguing architecture from all over Australia. The closest town to this attraction is Birdsville.
