Overview

Nearly 200 years ago, merchant, philanthropist and politician Robert Campbell was granted 4,000 acres of land - advised by James Ainslie, he established a sheep station on the banks of the Molonglo River.

Expanding his landholding and building a stone cottage, he named the growing estate Duntroon after his family home in Scotland. This exhibition brings together never-before-seen objects and images from the house, families, woolshed and dairy that made up this extensive early estate.
