The Gledswood estate dates back to 1810 and the property played a significant role in the establishment and development of the wool and wine industries in Australia. The Gledswood property was discovered because of an accident of the First Fleet, when in 1788, two bulls and four cows carried by the First Fleet escaped from the government farm. A convict hunter discovered the cattle 60 kilometres southwest of the government farm in 1795… welcome news as no fresh beef had been eaten in the colony for 7 years.
Today, the Gledswood Homestead & Winery tour provides a fascinating insight into the history of our property and where it fits into the local history of the Macarthur region. The tour is lead by one of our local historians. The homestead is undergoing restoration in 2016 and will be restored to its former glory – a very welcome improvement to this once, very grand, homestead. With all original buildings still standing, a trip to Gledswood Homestead & Winery is a step back in time and relaxing escape for busy modern life.
