Great place to see how people lived and worked in the 1800’s, how they used and shared convicts. Still a working farm, sheep, chooks and ducks wandering around. Friendly sheep as you enter grounds, love a scratch.

Lovely old buildings with all relevant information about the owners, the history of the farm and the convicts who worked there, the working conditions, etc. Very informative, plenty to see and well presented.

This is a great place to see how convicts lived and worked when they were assigned to landowners in Van Diemen’s Land. The buildings, including the little church, have good signage to show the convict story and there are many farm buildings to explore. There...More

I love going to places like this - outbuildings of an old homestead that you can walk around at your own pace. There were a number of buildings including the original house and outhouse, church and the working buildings. The resident cat kept us company...More
