We wanted to visit as this was the school in Picnic at Hanging Rock. A lovely drive to get there and a terrific insight into the lives of the owners. Well preserved with beautiful grounds to picnic in.

This home needs to be seen to be believed! Such a stunning display of pastoral wealth or a bygone era. So glad to see it cared for so generations to come can experience.

A visit to Martindale Hall is well worth the visit to see how living in remote areas was for the wealthy. A very nice place.

A beautiful manor house that I would expect to see in Europe somewhere. Lovely to wander around and read about the lives of the people who lived there. The signs could do with some updating though. I got the impression that furniture and art had...More
