Noorilim Station was established by Joseph Raleigh in 1848 and is named after the local Aboriginal tribe.
The homestead was erected c. 1870 by the Winter family. The two storey brick structure has rendered facades and is composed of an asymmetrical towered entrance facade and a garden front comprising a two-tiered arcade with centrally located pediment. The ground floor is articulated in the doric order, the first floor in the corinthian order.
Noorilim is one of the grandest homesteads erected in Victoria and relfects the affluence of the squatter class and the Winter family who were the largest landholders in this area of Victoria. The house is a fine example of the classical Italianate style, and is superbly executed. The tower, encircling pedimented arcades, grounds and intact interior are distinctive features. The association of the house with the Winter family and the parallels between Noorilim and other Winter homesteads are notable.
The building is intact and carefully maintained; the grounds are also carefully looked after.
