What an amazing place only $12 entry ,the place has been amazingly restored and the Antique furniture, OMG! What a collection. The fact that one of the owner renovators is still living there is incredible. This is a must see if your ever in Junee.

So much history, so many stories and you can sense the energy in the place (some positive, some not so positive). We did day tour and night ghost tour and it was fascinating.
