Homestead 100

Homestead 100

Commemorating the First 200 years of European settlement on the western banks of the Murrumbidgee.

Cuppacumbalong is recognised as one of the first gazetted properties on the western side of the Murrumbidgee River.  The history of Cuppacumbalong has included three homesteads over the years with the current homestead reaching 100 years of age in 2024.

Help us commemorate this historic event with a retrospective collection of photographs and stories / memories collected from the greater community.

Share with us any photographs and / or stories you have of your visits to Cuppacumbalong over the years.  Old photographs, records, stories and other memorabilia pertaining to the history of this side of the Murrumbidgee would also be appreciated and included.

Each Friday commencing in February 2024 we will post a small collection of the photos and stories collected on Instagram and Facebook with the aim of creating a photo-book commemorating the Homestead’s 100th birthday, and the first 200 years of European settlement on the western banks of the Murrumbidgee.

Please send your photos and stories to Amanda.  Please include names of people in the photographs (if known), the date / period and where possible, obtain their permission for images to be included / used.  Also include the name of the photographer (if known) so we can acknowledge them appropriately.

Looking forward to seeing and hearing what unfolds and the stories she holds.
