Building Australia

The Homestead
Season 1  |  Episode 3  |  The History Channel  |  August 6, 2013

This episode investigates the style of probably the most romantic form of Australian house. As we learn from Palladian Camden Park the initial impulse was to build 'country homes' that replicated the fashions and the assertions of a class system that were derived from England. But, as we see at Lanyon Homestead, it was not long before the design principles of the Australian homestead started to emerge.
