About this opportunity

The Old Farm, Strawberry Hill was considered old more than 100 years ago. As far back as 1890 it was given the name The Old Farm, in recognition of being the oldest farm in Western Australia, established even before the Swan River Colony.

After a period of neglect it was purchased in 1889 by Francis and Augusta Maude Bird who restored the house and farmed the land. In 1956 the property was purchased by the Government as an historic monument but fell into another cycle of neglect. Transferred to the National Trust in 1964, the property is being conserved to appropriately reflect its significance.
