Historical Charm: The Wonderful Story of the old Shearers Quarters

Step back in time and immerse yourself in the rich history of Australian shearing at Kimo Estate’s Shearers Quarters. Dating back to the 1830s, these quarters were once bustling with shearers who traveled from property to property, shearing thousands of sheep in just a couple of weeks.

Beginning Renovations in 2015

The “cook” who used to travel with the team based themselves in the Shearers Quarters. All day they would be cooking for the team in the kitchen. The communal “mess hall” offers a glimpse into the camaraderie and hard work of days gone by. The “Wash House” was simply a shed with hot water in it to wash up after a hard day. Today, the Shearers Quarters have been lovingly restored to retain their historical charm while providing modern comforts for guests.
