In our first outing since the onset of Covid19 LMFHG members crossed the border into the neighbouring Central Coast Council area to visit Alison Homestead Museum at Wyong.
|Genies from Lake Macquarie had a successful excursion|
The items on display in the several buildings at the venue provided stimulus for our conversations as we wandered around the site. Many members remarked that they have, in their homes and garages, treasures similar to those on display.
Alison Homestead and its gardens are beautifully maintained by a team of volunteers, the Central Coast area is fortunate in having such a magnificent site from which to tell their history. The many artifacts which are displayed across a number of buildings are in good condition and are clearly labelled. It is definitely worth crossing the border to visit this venue.
Our thanks go the volunteers from Wyong District Museum & Historical Society who look after the site. Volunteers served us a Devonshire Tea on arrival and lunch at the conclusion of our tour. We are grateful to our member, Jean, for organising this outing and look forward to future opportunities to get out and about, learn about our history and enjoy the fellowship of our members.
Following are a few snaps from the site.
