“One of many great pit-stops made during Sydney cruise port”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

We had a lot of fun being our own tour guides when our cruise shop stopped in Sydney, and this was one of our fun stops.

Staff were so nice here, and were open to questions and discussions. We were even told a great ghost story during our visit. Speaking of which, the attic is pretty spooky. I dare you to go up there after having heard the stories. Take pictures up there too....sometimes something extra appears in your digital image ;)

“Go Back in Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

For a token $2, go back in time at the Cosssit House. The costumed docents bring to life a bygone era. They explain how people lived in 1787. Tiny rooms, lots of children. Compare to how we live today. Amazing history.
