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.

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
