Fodor's Review

When it was built in 1859 on the plain beside the Murrumbidgee River, this wonderfully restored homestead from pioneering days was the centerpiece of a self-contained community. Many of the outbuildings and workshops where servants and the homestead's convict labor lived have been similarly well preserved. The gardens are lovely to wander around in, too.
