We stop to see the Koala Hospital, but found the adjacent Roto house much more fascinating. It's a gem.

Roto house is beautiful and well preserved. There are 10 rooms in this house, filled with the Flynn families memorabilia. Entry is via a gold coin donation, and there are staff on-site to give you a history of the house and family.

This is located near the Koala Hospital. The guides inside gave very informative information about the Flynns who lived in the house. The house has been restored in a loving and historical manner. A very interesting visit.
