About Early Avondale

The property known as 'Avondale' at Miners Rest near Ballarat, Victoria was where William Ross Snr, together with his wife Helen and children Mary, John and William Jnr settled shortly after their arrival in Australia on the 8th of February 1863. They built and lived in this modest earthen-floored cottage.

About ten years later when the Colonial Government of Victoria declared open for selection millions of acres in Northern Victoria, William, then in his sixties, with sons John and William traveled to and selected land at Kaarimba, 20 miles North of Shepparton on the 8th November, 1874. They called this place 'Bankside' after their previous home 'Bankfoot' in Scotland.

William Jnr later built the 'Hayshed' (another Ross Original design) and the 17,000 gallon water tank. He also planted the wind break of pines featured in that design.
