This is a great dive for beginners and you're sure to leave Woongarra Marine Park with new and exciting memories every time you dive. This site, ready to be explored all year round, will surprise you - the fact that it's just metres from the shore doesn't stop it from being breathtaking.

Barolin Homestead

You will pass by Barolin Homestead which is location at 105 Barolin Esplanade in Coral Cove.

Following the purchase of Gin Gin Station (established in 1848) from William Forster, the Brown brothers Alfred and Arthur Brown and station manager, Nugent Wade Brown (related to the brothers by marriage), sought additional land for selection. Nugent Wade Brown found what was a coastal plain between the Elliott River and the Burnett River, east of the Woongarra scrub, which he named ‘Borolin’ (later ‘Barolin’), an aboriginal word meaning ‘land of the Kangaroo’. A lease was taken by the Brown brothers and Nugent Wade Brown commenced construction of a “very fine house, spacious stables and barn, and underground brick and cement tanks” in 1875. The new house replaced an existing small bungalow cottage overlooking the ocean on what is now Coral Cove. The pastures, which were grassed and lightly timbered, were used for fattening bullocks, stock breeding and for the raising of draught and blood horses. Around this time, a rock wall was erected bordering the homestead site, presumably with indentured South Sea Islander labour, the use of such labour being widespread at this time for pastoral or station hand work.
