‘Eringa’ was the family home of Sir Sidney Kidman, his wife Isabelle and their four surviving children.

When the home was originally built in 1879 by Alexander Greenshields it was called Lanark House. Sid purchased the property for his growing family in 1902, re-naming the home ‘Eringa’. He and Isabelle lived here until their retirement, soon after Sid’s Knighthood in 1921 when the Kidmans donated the home and 10 acres of land to the Education Department. It became the town’s first High School and it is still operational today.
