The ruins of Davilak Homestead are in poor condition with most walls reduced to 40-60 cm in height and no structural timbers left in situ. However, the archaeological evidence associated with the ruins of Davilak Homestead is undisturbed with a high potential to contain stratified archaeological deposits. The 1850s Manning homestead complex and several outbuildings and field systems which exist as archaeological sites within Manning Estate, Hamilton Hill appear undisturbed with a high potential to contain undisturbed stratified archaeological deposits. Azelia Ley Homestead is in good condition.
