We spent a very enjoyable 2 hours looking around this homestead. Our guide, Lawrence was very informative about both the original owners and the renovation carried out by his father. We loved the antiques and the history tinged with humour. Would thoroughly recommend the tour!

Cheryl I don't recall the entry fees, sorry. They run the ghost tour, I think, as part of an overnight accommodation package, at night. There is no restriction on photography.
