Harrow Homestead, a private home and a grand residence with the warmth and charm of yesteryear. Robert Ramsay, the English owner, had the impressive home constructed in the 1870’s mainly of hoop pine and red cedar with large rooms and an arched hallway of polished pine and cedar panelling. The home covers 100 squares with wide verandas on three sides. Harrow was once the centre of the small village with many outbuildings, workers cottages and a school. Harrow is still very much a working property today.

Harrow Gardens. The rambling picturesque gardens cover 10 acres featuring a 50 metre rose arbour, a lake with waterlilies, extensive garden beds, interesting trees and shrubs and a fish pond. The present garden, which was created under the direction of the late Mrs Mavis Carrigan, has previously featured in the Australian open Garden scheme on three occasions.
