The Oldest Private Ballroom in the Outback
In 1927 an impressive Outback ballroom was built at Camden Park Station of Jarrah wood from Western Australia and featuring an exquisite chandelier. The ballroom has hosted many dignitaries over the years including the Queen.
It is said a young man set out looking to make his own opportunities and was heading in the direction of the Camden Park Homestead to offer his services in exchange for food and lodging... but unfortunately, he never made it.
