Par Force Estate Ruins

This colonial estate was in use since at least 1721 when it was split up into four smaller estates; though the entire property was united after just over forty years. It would continue to be fully operation until around 1850 when it was abandoned. Since then it has been renovated several times and stands, for the most part, in tact; offering a unique window into the past.


There are plenty of ruins for hikers to explore and take pictures of. They are completely unregulated though, so do not expected safety features or information panels.
