Loved and maintained by four generations of women from one local family, Meroogal has barely changed since it was built in the 1880s. The house still overflows with their favourite belongings, and the garden with fruit and produce that hint at their self-sufficiency and hospitality. Books and ornaments, furniture, photographs, diaries and journals, clippings, recipes and receipts – all tell a multitude of stories about the pleasures and labours of daily life, the ‘Roogal’ women and the south-coast community in which they lived. It’s also home to the biannual Meroogal Women’s Art Prize.
