Abstract (in English)

Belgenny Farm is the oldest group of farm buildings in Australia. It is part of Camden Park Estate, founded in 1805 by John and Elizabeth Macarthur, and it has strong associations with the beginnings of the Australian wool industry. Today, the Farm is an educational and tourist destination, a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the modern world as well as being a rare example of a traditional working 19th century farm. The property is managed by the Belgenny Farm Trust, but owned by the New South Wales (NSW) Government’s Department of Primary Industries (formerly Department of Agriculture). This paper provides an overview of the issues involved in the conservation and management of the site over the last 20 years to ensure its character and sense of place is preserved for future generations.
