A Step Back in Time:

One of the main attractions of Churchill Island is its rich history, dating back to the 1800s. As we explored the island, we came across the beautifully preserved heritage farm, which gave us a glimpse into Australia’s early agricultural past. We were fascinated by the historic buildings, including the original homestead, and marveled at the traditional farming methods still in practice today.
