View from a low hill of an extensive river plain surrounded by hills, with Lake Coleridge and snow-clad mountains in the background and a river to the left. Sheep are grazing on the lower hills to the right and on the flat valley. In the far left foreground is a road, with a dray being pulled by horses towards the station. In the centre left, there are farm buildings with a dray and horses, and a haystack surrounded by fences. In the centre is the homestead, surrounded by trees, with an older building, possibly the original homestead on the lower slopes of the hills to the right of the homestead.

Lake Coleridge Station was originally purchased by A.C.Barker and others in 1855. In 1860 it was jointly owned by George Arthur Emilius Ross and Charles John Harper. At the date of this painting, Harper was the sole owner. There is now a hydro station occupying part of the land shown in the picture.
