  • Outstanding experience. The volunteers have created a well preserved slice of early settler life. History comes alive through the house, the guides and items on display.

  • Wow what an incredible insight into the beginnings of Tasmania. Great staff that are very knowledgeable. Not really recommend for children or teenagers as they may find it boring. Very interesting.
  • Great job of restoring a unique piece of Tasmanian history. Spent an enjoyable hour or do wandering and immersing ourselves into another era.
