What you need to know

The Blyth Homestead is a simple dwelling in Litchfield National Park built in 1928 by Harry Sargent and his teenage children as an outstation and abandoned in the 1960’s. It is one of the only sites that remain on this old tin mine. The homestead is a low roofed one room hut constructed from cypress pine with a corrugated iron roof. It has now been restored and is open to the public as a historic site to visit for free. Complete with informative display boards, the site tells the story and serves as a reminder of the trials, tragedies and harsh living conditions pioneers faced living in a remote area. Access to the Blyth Homestead is by 4WD access only and the road is subject to flooding during the tropical season (November to April). There are two water crossings before you reach the Blyth Homestead ruins. Wander the grounds of the homestead to appreciate what life must have been like living and working in this isolated, remote part of Litchfield National Park .

Note

  • Access to the homestead is by four wheel drive only.
