Brucedale Cottage

How do you tell the incredible story of Brucedale in just a few words...

Do you start with George Suttor’s connections to Governor Bligh and his two year journey to make a 30 minute court appearance in London in support of the Governor’s role in the Rum Rebellion.

Do you talk about the impact that two year absence had upon his adored wife Sally, left to manage the property and 6 young children. We’re talking 1810 here..can you imagine!

Or perhaps we could start with the day Banjo Patterson came to visit.

Or why the Bathurst region’s great indigenous warrior, Windradyne came to be buried near the creek.

Few Australian properties boast a history as rich and colourful as that of Brucedale. We’d be happy to share our story with you.
