Take a look back in time at the historic Hawkstowe farm complex, which sits elegantly on the hill with views of the entire Park.

Extensive restoration works have been undertaken on the homestead building in recent times, returning it to its 1860's period. Surrounding the homestead is a cottage garden with mature exotic trees.

The Le Page Homestead is the home base for Plenty Valley Arts Inc, who offer arts based activities and events to the broader community.
