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 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
