Elizabeth Farm. Rosehill, Australia

Australia doesn't come across as a particularly old country, but we have some old stuff! Built in 1793, Elizabeth Farm is the oldest still-standing building in Australia.

Yes, yes, that pales in comparison to the old-ness of structures almost everywhere else in the world, but it's still cool!

Elizabeth Farm was originally the family home of General John Macarthur, his wife Elizabeth and several children. Macarthur was a member of the NSW Military Corp, leader of the famed Rum Rebellion, and founder of Australia's first major export - the wool industry.

Beautifully preserved and refurnished to celebrate early Australian history, Elizabeth Farm is totally worth a visit. Come by ferry or train to Parramatta, where the waters meet and the eels play.
