Built by the Sargent family in 1929 and abandoned in the early 1960s, the Blyth Homestead, which was also the location of an old tin mine now a stands as a reminder of the tough conditions faced by the pioneers in remote areas.

 

The home was eventually sold by the second owners to the Territory Government to become part of Litchfield National Park in 1985.

 

Standing before the home, you can appreciate the tough conditions faced by the pioneers in remote areas. It has recently been restored, and an interpretive display presents the trials and tragedies of this remote site.

 

Access to the homestead is by four wheel drive only.
