Overview

Narryna House & Garden offers a delightful retreat from the modern world. Step back into a 19th century, enjoy the old fashioned charm and take in the lovely spring garden. Why not bring a picnic? Australia's first folk museum (opened 1957) offers an array of collections including Huon pine furniture, portraits, domestic tools and equipment and costumes, Markree is one hundred years on (Arts & Craft movement)and only 200 metres down the road!! Check both houses out for $16!! What a bargain.

Narryna is well worth a visit. It's interesting to see the furniture, clothes, ornaments etc of the time and to get a better understanding of what life was like. Also interesting to see how the owners lived compared to their servants.

This is a lovely restored building showing you how rooms would have been used and set out. It is also interesting to check out the items in the kitchen and laundry.

Well laid out and easy to see house - maximises the history of the house to create a display space as well. The huon pine bedroom is a must for wood lovers - amazing furniture that glows with the honeyed hews of that special wood....More

This historical house provided a window into two lifestyles: that of the wealthy owners and that of the servants. On the grand side: fancy wallpapers, decorative arts under glass domes, paintings, abundant nursery. The workaday: laundry tools, kitchen, a dormitory for female convict servants. Also...More
