Welcome to Iandra Castle
A hidden gem in Central West NSW

If you should happen to be driving through the Central West of NSW, past grazing sheep, amid paddocks of wheat and canola, the last thing you would expect to see is a castle! On the road from Greenethorpe to Young, however, this is just what you will see.

Mount Oriel homestead is a unique part of Australia's heritage. The existing homestead was built over, and incorporates, the original single-storey brick building on the site. This was the home of George Henry Greene, local landowner, grazier, and politician, after whom nearby Greenethorpe is named. Construction was made using concrete, and was finished in 1911.
