WELCOME TO MUTTON FALLS
HOMESTEAD & VENUE
TARANA, CENTRAL WESt NSW
1800's Homestead steeped in Australian history.
available now for accommodation, weddings,
functions & workshops.
Built in 1860 by Richard Mutton for the Webb family, Mutton Falls has been restored with careful
consideration, has satellite internet, and can sleep large numbers.
The homestead was originally a dairy farm and has a wonderful, colourful history.
One of the first residents was Ann Webb, Richard Mutton's sister.
Anne raised her 5 children here and managed a General Sore on the main route to Bathurst.
The General Store was unsuccessfully held up on more than once, including on one occasion
in 1867 when bushrangers Larry Cummins and John Foran got more than they
bargained for from Ann Webb’s third son, Robert. He confronted the bushrangers and shot Cummins in the shoulder and cheek (the cartridge was probably loaded with shot used to scare off hawks).
The pair managed to gallop away but were later arrested and Cummins was sentenced to 30 years jail for a number of robberies under arms.
