Aberdeen - Sleep

Small rural service town beside the Hunter River

The single-storey stone Georgian homestead (1830s) is a little difficult to see from the roadside as it is set back from the road. It has a hipped roof and bull-nosed verandah. Surveyor-General Thomas Mitchell, explorers Allan Cunningham and Edmund Kennedy, and Governor Bourke all used the house as a base for their investigations of the land to the north. The old homestead of the stud's manager (built in 1894) is available as a bed-and-breakfast, tel: (02) 6543 7230.
