“Very interesting”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

This was the home of Ben Chifley and the house is left as it was in the 1950's. Very informative and an interesting tour guide

“Step back in time.”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

From the moment you walk through the door and begin your tour you feel like you have stepped back in time and Prime Minister Ben Chifley and his wife Elizabeth are going to come out and greet you.
Their modest house appears little changed from when they lived there and is full of their prized possessions - gifts from overseas dignitaries and local organisations - such as the model of a DC3 airplane which opens into a pipe and tobacco holder.
Then there are the day-to-day things like Ben's pipes and detective novels - with tobacco from his pipe still between the pages. And Elizabeth's sewing gear.
The tour was conducted by local people who are knowledgeable and passionate about the house and I really enjoyed it.
