This is a replica of the homestead built by the Jamieson family on their pastoral lease which they claimed in 1847. The lease was originally called Yerre Yerre but in 1858 the name was changed to ‘Mildura’, believed to mean ‘red earth’ in the local Aboriginal language. It is believed that they built the original homestead in in the same year. This eventually became the Mildura Station Homestead. What you see now is a replica built during the 1980s as a tourist attraction. A replica shearing shed was also constructed and this is available for hire as a venue for functions.
