Saumarez Homestead, a 30-room Edwardian mansion from 1888, near Armidale NSW

Gifted to the National Trust in 1984, Saumarez estate was established in the 1830s.
The property takes its name from the Dumaresq's Estate in Jersey in the Channel Islands. For five years after settlement, Saumarez with its well supplied store, tools, clothing and basic food was the last stopping point for settlers moving north ?beyond the boundaries'. After Dumaresq's death, the property was sold to H A Thomas, whose family lived in the original slab homestead overlooking Saumarez Creek. The White family purchased Saumarez in 1874 and worked the property until they gave the 10 hectares that included the historic precincts to the National Trust in 1984. The rest of Saumarez was split up and sold off by 2004
