This is the homestead of Hamilton Hume which has an amazing history sadly all of the furnishings have disappeared over time, which is a shame. The tour guide is a wealth of information and is very knowledgeable. Well worth the time to visit.

Really enjoyed the visit to the charming old historic homestead with it's memories of yesteryear. Old furniture, a delightful little cottage garden and a fabulous view across the paddocks and the Yass River round out a lovely visit.

Volunteer run and well maintained. A facility under used. Would be great to have more interactive opportunities and education

We arrived just as the lady was locking up as it had been very quiet. She was pleasant enough as she walked around unlocking and opening various rooms and shutters. As others have said more money needs to be spent on it ... in fact...More

We had a wonderful guide in Margaret who showed us around and provided history. We're offered a cuppa and a slice of her homemade cake. Yummy.
