|The Buffalo River valley is an area of
"varying landscape and remarkable beauty" and this is apparent
in the Homestead site. It lies at the western edge of Mount
Buffalo and looks directly onto Buffalo, Sugarloaf and the Nug
Nug hills. It is accessed from Osborne's Bridge, where the
river roars out through a narrow ravine over granite boulders
onto the wider agriculturally productive valley floor below.

"Nug Nug Wah" station. The Homestead was built by Dundas at
the northern end of the property on an elevated site
overlooking the river flats. Only part of the original
building remains due to extensive renovations over time by
