Athenree Homestead Open Day

Open first Sunday of the month
Homestead noon - 3pm
Station Cafe noon - 3pm

Nothing can be more wonderful than a House Tour, led by our experienced volunteer guides. They will lead you through the lives of Adela and Hugh Stewart through the beautifully presented authentic late Victorian and early Edwardian homestead rooms.

Being a homestead restoration dedicated to Adele and Hugh gives it a personal touch which is expanded with stories and person items which bring the period to life.

Each room is presented and maintained by our team of volunteers and historians.

For any information contact Barbara our House expert 07 863 4421

Open Days – Sunday 12 am – 3 pm.
Entrance Fee to the Homestead Tour – $5 per person


The Station Refreshment Rooms

The Station Refreshment Rooms at the Homestead Station are open for Athenree Tea every Sunday commencing on Fathers’ Day with a Father’s Day Ploughmans Lunch. Pop up and enjoy our devonshire teas whilst taking in the gardens and panoramic views to the sea.

Athenree Tea – This is the traditional, freshly baked scone topped with jam and cream accompanied by your choice of tea or coffee. Athenree Tea can be accompanied by a conducted tour through the house.

FOR GROUPS Of TEN OR MORE, High tea or Ploughmans platter – High tea includes Athenree Tea and a selection of freshly made sandwiches. A ploughman’s platter is made up of cold meats, cheeses and pickles served with a fresh roll.

As all of the Homestead staff are volunteers, it is important that we have firm dates and numbers in advance.
We do look forward to serving you at our beautiful venue where you can enjoy the sea and rural views from the deck outside or soak up the history of the station inside.
