We looked around the grounds, was interesting and many opportunities for the photo enthusiast. An ancient jade plant overhangs the old stone wall. Loved the massive old tree.

Delighted you enjoyed this slice of Western Australian History. The old tree is approximately 118 years old and the jade planted by the Chinese Cook in the 1850's.
