Avoca Farm is only 2kms west of Narembeen on the Bruce Rock-Narembeen Road. What a great place for astrophotography. The historic farm is owned by the Shire and is home to one of Narembeen’s original homesteads, an historic shearing shed and old farm machinery. There are so many angles for astrophotographers! You’ll have a great night out and end up with a multitude of images with different landscape features. Great fun!
