Stranraer Homestead

  • SUMMARY
  • DETAILS
  • VIDEO

Graham and Lyn Wheaton of Stranraer Homestead offer a unique insight into life on Kangaroo Island life on their 3500-acre property.

The Stranraer Homestead property on Kangaroo Island has been in the Wheaton family since 1911. Stranraer received its name by Robert and Mary Wheaton because Mary's ancestors resided in Stranraer Scotland. This town is regarded as a safe port, and they thought the name is very appropriate to their property at MacGillivray.

In 1920 the building for the Stranraer Homestead commenced and it took 5 years to complete construction of the 80 square building. The homestead on Kangaroo Island now has been restored to its former glory, after four years of restoration.

The farm still operates as a fully functional property; their main commodity is prime lamb production.
The farm is dotted with hummocks and two large lagoons, which support over 45 species of birds and other fauna.

Stranraer Homestead offers a country experience with peace and tranquillity. Its central location on the Island allows convenient access to other natural beauty spots and wildlife habitats.
