Very friendly staff, ended up getting a personalised tour through the houses by on of the very knowledgeable volunteers. Two of the three houses on display were open to view and were well laid out in period furnishings. Beautiful grounds also.

This is a wonderful place to visit. The main house is a stunning piece of colonial Queensland architecture and most of the rooms are set up authentically with a few real treasures amongst them. The miner's cottage gives a good contrast and shows the ingenuity...More

A delightful insight into the history of Townsville. Bruce gave us a very informative guided tour of 'Currajong', it's history and the owners. It made such a difference having someone explain the history so you have a clearer understanding, instead of just looking at photos...More

Great tour from excellent tour guide of two very different 19th century homes. Houses are furnished with items from the 19th century which have come from the Townsville area. A rare treat and not to be missed. Easy to reach by public transport.
