If you're into this sort of thing then go there. What a great way to find out about a place. We loved it and the volunteer staff were absolutely wonderful; very friendly and informative.

“History and nostalgia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

A lovely glimpse back in time, knowledgeable and friendly volunteers to answer any questions. The history of the house and the Flynn family - a revelation as to where the name came from. The restoration and recreation are a true testament to the dedicated and talented team of volunteers. Well worth a visit and don't forget to leave a small donation to help keep the house open.

“A pleasant surprise...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

It was raining as we arrived to see the Koala Hospital so until the rain stopped we wandered around Roto House and discovered the history of the house, its families and the local area. It's set in a beautiful location and is well maintained and run by volunteers. Put aside some time to have a look.
