Found this place by accident. It's a beautiful old estate with cottage accommodation. Lovely peaceful grounds with fantastic rose garden and small cafe with excellent food and a hamper service. Stayed two nights and had a tour of the house which was very interesting. Would highly recommend for visit only or for staying.

Visiting this house and grounds is a great day out. We included the guided tour of the house which was great, led by a very knowledgeable and passionate guide. The house was originally 'served' by convicts so gives another view of a convicts life in Australia. The grounds are also interesting, including the rose garden (probably best in November). Overall... More

We went for a couple of hours but could easily have stayed all day, taken a picnic and walked to the other World heritage listed property nearby which is a 50 min walk in each direction (we will do that next time as we will definitely return). Well worth the $20 tour fee per adult to look inside the homestead.... More

We need to have more places like this in our country. It is truly a living museum, where the last person has left and everything remains as it was, all those years ago. Especially loved the shearing shed.

This amazing 19th century home is very well preserved & presented. Judee, our guide was a mine of information about the people, place & history of the homestead. It was in the same family for 6 generations & has all their possessions as they were from 1839 till 1990. The rose garden is worth a visit too to see &... More

It’s a strange set up where they charge you $10 admission per person before being allowed to view items that you might buy. The items displayed are from Antique Shops, which you can visit and view products for free. Definitely was not the “antique fair” which was advertised, there were only 4 or 5 antique dealers, displaying some of their... More

Well worth a visit. The grounds and buildings are maintained meticulously. The rose garden is unbelievable with its archways, walkways and many plots with magnificent blooms showing their various colours.

Although the history and buildings on this Estate are fascinating our experience with the accommodation tainted our impression of the Estate. Winter is obviously not the best time to visit but one would not expect to have buildings closed and locked early when there are visitors still looking around. Didn't go into the home as we refused to pay extra... More
