Ever wonder what it would be like to live in the 1880s? Our tour highlights the comparisons between a modern home and the pioneer Homestead. See if you can guess what rooms are missing. How would you manage without mains water, hot water, electricity, phone, car and many other conveniences we take for granted. As the Tour progresses around the property you will walk through the beautiful gardens set in lawns with stunning trees including a magnificent 100 year old oak. The Tour also includes the 1920s St Marys Chapel, Historic Kitchen, Blacksmiths and Vintage Machinery shed.

Our Beautiful Gardens
