Abercrombie House is a heritage treasure of the Bathurst Region.

Built by James Stewart (c. 1870s), the historic mansion was originally the home of the Stewart family – Bathurst pioneers.

William Stewart came to Australia from England in 1825 as part of the colonisation of the penal colony (Australia). William was the Lieutenant Governor General of New South Wales, which meant he was hypothetically 2nd in command to running Australia. William was given land in Bathurst as a reward for doing his job well. William Stewart’s eldest son James built Abercrombie House. The house is considered grand enough to be listed on the New South Wales Heritage Register.

Since 1969 the Morgan family has made major restorations to the house and is currently occupied by Richard Morgan’s brother, Christopher, and his family.

It is one of the largest private homes in the Central West covering 210 squares. Built as a Tudor Gothic/Scottish baronial style mansion, it has over 40 rooms and 29 fireplaces and a ballroom with a 28 feet high ceiling.

Ophir Road, Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia.
