The National Rose Garden was simply gorgeous. Perfect time of year to visit as the roses were in full bloom and the scent divine!! $14 entrance fee and we could do our own "self guided" tour of the historical buildings (minus the lodge). We were able to walk around and explore otherwise to our hearts content which was great! With... More

This place is gorgeous. Well maintained and preserved. I loved that our tour guide is married to an Archer! It really added to the experience that the family are still involved.

The guided tour through the buildings was amazing. However, it could have been better in as much as instead of a small torch being used to highlight the features, a more permanent or brighter lighting setup would be better. We were disappointed in the gardens though. This place is supposed to be a showcase. Not so with weeds everywhere throughout... More

This is a must for anyone wishing to experience how the wealthy, successful early pioneers lived. The property has bot been tampered with for nearly 200 years.It has been in the hands of 5 generations, and they have not changed anything, or thrown anything out. It is as they lived in it, and is full of stories of the early... More

Firstly the only way to see inside parts of the old homestead is to do a tour. You have to pay as well to look around the grounds at the other buildings ie. Courtyard/ cellar. The tea shop was lovely and soup and Devonshire tea was good. However I get annoyed by not being able to look around a property... More

A wonderful experience heading back nearly 2 centuries in this well kept and restored homestead with beautiful gardens and out sheds Well done, well preserved and well worth going there Its a bit wet at the moment. Check that the road and bridge is open.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour taken by Gaye. At first we were unsure why we had to be on a tour to see inside the house but as we went through we understood of the lengths taken to preserve the house. It is the oldest colonial estate still intact in the country and the view and property is spectacular! It... More

Four of us arrived too late in the day to undertake the last house tour of the day - at 2-30pm. This was disappointing as we knew the famous Heritage Rose garden would be in winter mode and not much to see. Still, we paid our money to be allowed to walk round the outside of the buildings and through... More
