Childhood there was blissfully happy. Sport of all kinds, cricket especially the nets. About 75 kids of both sexes. Holidays at Mandurah were a bonus. Now it is a venue for sleeping in the cottages etc. Still great.

An early colonial period house, with separate kitchen, furnished with some original pieces and other items of the period. The grounds were not really a garden--rather sparse after a very dry summer. The caretaker gave us a detailed history of the area and the families...More
