Langi Oonah was originally part of the Boomanoomana Station (settled in 1850's).

Langi Oonah was built in the 1920's and local materials were used in its construction. With its high ceiling old world rooms, spaciousness and extensive gardens, Langi Oonah retains the atmosphere of the Federation Age. Wool and wheat were the main products grown and paddle steamers made it up to the Station to collect the produce to take back to the cities.

With the numbers of families employed, a school house was constructed. Teachers were usually boarded locally. Apparently the "lady" teachers found the situation "pretty tough" - the children not always anxious to learn.

Cobb & Co coaches passed through Langi Oonah and a resting station was created on the top of the hill at the back of the house. Fresh teams of horses were provided and the new team galloped on to Boomanoomana and then onto Mulwala.

It is believed that in times of severe drought , in places, one could walk across the Murray River as it receded into a series of deep water holes. At one stage the Murray River Redgums and Murray Pines were used to construct houses and sheds, and also to to make sleepers for the railway tracks.
