This house, built in 1839, is located next to the Swan River. It is called Tranby House, as this was the name of the ship the Hardey family came to Western Australia on. It was built by the Hardey family, who were influential members of the local community. The house is simply furnished in the manner of what would have... More

We came here years ago and little has changed since then. We had coffee and cakes for morning tea, lovely cakes but a little expensive. However the views, altmosphere and company more than made up for it. We would like to try lunch there one day as the food looked good.

I went I visit Tranby House because I heard it is the oldest house in the metropolitan area, built in 1839. The house is well preserved, with period furniture. Informative guides. Beautiful riverside location with Peninsula Tea Garden next door. Amazing high teas on the menu, with views over the river. Will definitely return another time.

It's well worth a trip out to Tranby Farm homestead, the food and service is good whether its for lunch, fine dining or simply afternoon tea you won't be disappointed. Watch the boats go by on the river or explore the history of the homestead.

The Peninsula Farm is, in the terms in which things are measured in Western Australia (WA), very old. Tranby is not a castle or even a very grand house, but it is interesting. Maylands, where the ,Old Farm is located, is an inner city suburb by the river. It's worth the trip, just to ave a look around.

I caught up with a friend for morning tea here, even though they were very busy the service was prompt and the staff were lovely. It was great to see they had gluten free options available too!!

Tranby is the oldest brick residence in the inner area of the city Perth. Maylands is an old suburb, much of it was once part of the Trfanby farm. The building is now open for inspection and is furnished with period items. Tranby is a favourite destination for locals and visitors. The popular tea rooms are open every day except... More

We did not go into the cottage as it was closed - we did not realise that it was only opened on certain days. However we had also decided before hand that we would visit the little café overlooking the Swan River. This café is part of the Tranby Farm site and is worth a visit. Having booked a table... More

Great spot if you like a bit of local history as the Tranby house dates back to 1830. High Tea under the oak trees on Royal Albert china is a special event, and you'd better bring an appetite if you intend to eat it all. They do provide a cake box to take the leftover home, and almost every couple... More
