Alison Homestead is the oldest established, continuous rural homestead in the Wyong District. The homestead, set on 2 hectares in a rural setting occupies Wyong's first land grant.
In December 2011 the original and beautiful heritage-homestead building housing the museum was destroyed by fire.
Although the homestead building has not yet been rebuilt, the Flower Packing Shed houses a collection of articles and artifacts, Barker's Barn is full of farming machinery and working tools and the Slab Hut School House remain centres of attraction for visitors.
The Nursery is open Monday – Wednesday from 10am - 2pm and has an extensive range of plants for sale.
Reconstruction is well underway and its anticpated that the museum will reopen in mid 2015, with an official opening planned in October.
