Woodlands Historic Homestead


Woodlands Homestead, located at Woodlands Historic Park, is a unique and treasured part of Victoria’s heritage. A kit home manufactured in London by Peter Thompson and brought to Australia by William Pomeroy Green when he emigrated with his family in 1843, the homestead and associated outbuildings still retain many of the original features from this time.
Woodlands Homestead is one of 107 early prefabricated buildings across Australia that are currently undergoing a joint application for listing on the World Heritage register. It is the only known example of the work of English prefabricated builder Thompson in Australia. This year’s OHM tours will highlight feature of the homestead associated with it being a prefabricated building.
