DESCRIPTION

Details

Brownlow Hill is a colonial farming estate with an outstanding scenic landscape setting with many rare surviving early colonial structures and features. Brownlow Hill contains a designed landscape with ground modeling, layout and plantings from the pre-1860s. The homestead layout and farm was established by Alexander Macleay, first Colonial Secretary of NSW and his sons George and to a lesser extent James Macleay. Tipped-in collotype from Hardy Wilson's 'Old Colonial Architecture in New South Wales and Tasmania'. William Hardy Wilson was an Australian architect, artist and author. Determined to make Australians as aware of their early colonial heritage, Wilson made drawings of colonial buildings in New South Wales and Tasmania: he 'looked at buildings with a painter's eye as much as an architect's', even noting the plants in their gardens. In 1924, his 'Old Colonial Architecture in New South Wales and Tasmania' was published containing 50 collotypes after his drawings.
