Ruins of the Old Cork station homestead with some signage. The ruins are part of Winton’s Pioneer Trail, 126km south-west of Winton. It is a vintage sandstone homestead of one of the original properties in the Winton Shire. The property was settled in the 1870s and was the mail distribution point before Winton was established.

As the homestead was often cut off for several weeks at a time, the administration centre of the property moved at the turn of the 20th Century. However, the families of the workers on the property continued to live there until the 1980s, when it was abandoned. It has since been allowed to deteriorate.

There is a single drop toilet here. Visitors are welcome to camp along the nearby waterhole that lies on the Diamantina River (walking distance from ruins). See separate Place listing for camping details.
