|City Farm walk to Milhams Farmhouse Ruin|
Step back in time on this short easy walk that guides you from Riverside Park picnic area to the ruins of the Milham's family farmhouse. The farm was once a vibrant dairy and today you will still see cattle grazing in the fenced paddocks alongside the walk. From the banks of the north arm of the Hunter River, this walk follows the old farm road (closed to traffic) alongside the paddocks and she oak forest. There is a picnic table in the shade near the old house, a nice quiet spot to sit and reminisce on the rich history and natural beauty of the area. (open in app)
