This is a very special and unique place - a rarity in Australia! This is not a museum - it is a wonderful historic home, full of history, tastefully and painstakingly restored over many years by the Morgan family. Do not miss this wonderful place!

Very big, dark house, full of lots of knick knacks. Many stories about different features and past residents. Nice gardens.
