Built in 1895, this stunning Historic homestead is opening for viewing on Sunday afternoons from 30th August through until 27th September. We encourage families to bring their children to see just how houses were often built 120 years ago.

The CoachHouse Archive display holds some fascinating local history . Read about the pioneering families who used to reside here and the interesting life the property has lead.

Available for viewing are the four watercolour paintings by Lydia Larden (Ethel Lydia Larden Birch) in 1884, now hanging in the Nannestad and Strang rooms. ( Donated courtesy of Patricia Keiller a relative of Maud Caccia Birch - nee Keiller).
