The agricultural outbuildings of Avoca Station reflect the extent of activity typical on the large stations prior to the century. The Station, due to its size and relative isolation, acted as a small township providing accommodation and facilities for numerous workers, tradesman and their families. These particular buildings have unique character defined by their decorative architectural elements, usually retained to distinguish the character of the main homestead.
