It was magnificent weather on the long weekend, so we took the opportunity to visit Iandra Castle. Bustling with happy picnics, the Castle and gardens looked fantastic. An affordable way to spend the weekend.

A fantastic piece of farming history, open to the public three times a year. If you are in the central west take the time to visit.

We had never heard of Iandra Castle, near Greenethorpe, NSW, until we were checking out of a motel at Cowra on Easter Sunday and the motel owners mentioned Iandra Castle was having an Open Day. Well, what a revelation! After driving for miles through what seemed nowhere, all of a sudden you could see the turrets of the Castle through the trees. It was jaw-dropping to see such a beautiful, architectural masterpiece before us. There were 100s of visitors arriving! We drove throught the gates and were instructed where to park on the vast grounds of the estate, paid our $10 each for entry and then were allowed to roam the beautifully landscaped grounds, the stables and the Castle. There was no guided tour, you could just wander freely and wander we did, through most of the 57 rooms open to the public.

Iandra Castle is steeped in history, both for the Castle itself and also for being a pioneer of the share-farming system. At one time, the estate had it's own post office, school, shops, hotel and church for all the workers on the estate. The Castle when built (foundation stone laid 1880), was ahead of it's time having it's own electricity, telephone exchange and sewer system. Today, It is privately owned and doesn't get any government funding, so it relies on the Open Days to help fund restoration and maintenance.

It was magnificent and well worth the drive. Visitors were picnicking on the grounds and it was just lovely to see everyone enjoying this truly beautiful place. I intend to visit again, so I can take in more of the magic Iandra Castle holds. As it's not open all the time, best to check out the website to find out what days it will be open, then plan your visit. You won't be disappointed and will feel like you've stepped back in time to the romance of pioneering.

Cannot say enough about how great this was and I highly recommend a visit!
