There are a number of original (1800s) cottages in the grounds of the estate which sleep up to 6 people. They are cosy, with wood heaters and self contained kitchen. The house cafe does wonderful home made scones with clotted cream and blackberry jam made from their own wild berries! A new visitors' centre is to open mid 2017 which will complement the existing facilities.
Fantastic Convicts to Classisc Car & Bike Show last weekend.
Amazing to be able to wander around this 200yr okd homestead.
Very interesting. Great display of history inside and outside. Good tour guides
One of the oldest, most comprehensive and best preserved rural properties in Australia - this is a unique national treasure. It could be even more complete with accounts of interaction between this very early British settler family, the environment and the aboriginal inhabitants. Congratulations and thanks to all the volunteers.
