With an audio guide included in the price, myself and my husband spent a wonderful couple of hours looking through this historic home and into the grounds where there were lots of outbuildings. The audio made the tour very enjoyable.

Lovely buildings well maintained. Would be nice if they put as much care and concern into their animals as the buildings. Watched a piglet being stomped and attacked to death by other larger pigs to be told that's life and the pig was probably sick anyway. It may be life in the wild but in a pen at Tocal -... More

The homestead and barn is a perfect venue for a wedding. We held ours in September on a weekend with perfect weather and the venue couldn't have been more wonderful.

Attended a Wedding at Tocal. The wedding was held in the grounds outside the homestead. What a perfect setting. Huge moreton bay fig trees provide an amazing backdrop for the wedding photographs as does the lake nearby. Reception held on site. Perfect in every way

The blacksmith's shop looks unchanged from the 1800s. The two-storey Tocal Homestead is interesting but fairly plain and stark, in contrast to the outbuildings which really have a lot of... More

This is a review about the CB Alexander Agricultural College close to the historical homestead. During 50 years since its establishment , the facilities of the college has been extended year after year, and still it keeps the great atmosphere and totality. The harmony of traditional brick walls and timber roofs are so brilliant, and the extraordinary composition between many... More

The homestead is well worth a look as it has some great historical buildings. We also did the Open day at the college which was brilliantly run and very informative. A lovely part of the world.
