Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm...

Looking out over the pond towards the original farmhouse.

The original farmhouse was built by Robert and Susannah Aspinall.
Robert was a convict who was transported in 1842 for stealing lead.

The Aspinalls' had 7 children so the school house was needed, it was set in a cherry orchard.
The Aspinall sons were big men who used to cut railway sleepers
 from the surrounding trees then carry them for up to 3 kms.

Lots of bird life on the ponds.

The surrounding countryside is lovely.

It's a lovely place to visit, we still caught some Autumn colour.
