Get a feeling for the trials and tragedies of remote pioneering life with a visit to the restored homestead of the Sargent family at the old tin mine.

The historic Blyth Homestead is found within Litchfield National Park, and is also the location of an old tin mine, which is now in ruins. The homestead site serves as a reminder of the tough conditions faced by pioneers in remote areas.
