This house is along side the Koala Hospital and well worth a visit. Again, no cost to enter, just a box to collect any gold coins. It's a lovely old home, quite large, and the furniture and art worth are worth a look.

Photographs, documents and memorabilia add the personal touch that allows a glimpse into the encountered extremes, lifestyles and sacrifices of our pioneering ancestors.

Glad we went here. Delightful house built in the 1890s, which adjoins the koala hospital. The volunteer tour lady was very informative and made it that much more interesting. Plenty of koalas to see and not touch at the hospital, and an opportunity to learn...More
