The land for Iandra was bought by George Greene, who was to become a prominent farmer and politician in the area.
Originally there was a more modest house on the site but as his wealth and influence grew George began work on a rather unusual Edwardian reinforced concrete castle in 1908. I'm not sure if it was finished by his death in 1911.
Sadly Iandra has fallen into a state of some disrepair. The current owners are undertaking major structural work for its preservation, but it's clearly a long, difficult and expensive process. They have a number of open days each year to help raise funds.

It was a beautiful day and there were many more people than I expected for a rather remote location.

The scenery on the drive home was lovely. The canola out in bloom is always a special time of year.
