      Sorry to be a pedant, but this isn't actually a shot of Elizabeth Farm. This is the facade of Experiment Farm which is just up the road from Elizabeth Farm. Experiment Farm was the site of the first land grant, given to the ex-convict James Ruse, and then sold to Surgeon John Harris.

      Elizabeth Farm and Experiment Farm shared a fence line, and in some ways look similar, but this is definitely Experiment Farm.
