Tours include:

COLONIAL GAOL

Step into Gaol and hear about law and order in the early days of settlement.  Experience the cramped conditions in the gaol cells.  In the prisoner’s Day Room, view an exhibition of early trades, plus some fascinating artefacts.

TAYLOR’S COTTAGE

A visit to the quaint early settler’s cottage is a real step back in time.  Hear stories of ex convict Edward Taylor, wife Emma, and their numerous children who once lived here.  What was life like before electricity, running water and inside toilets?  Find out when you tour Taylor’s Cottage.

WASH HOUSE

Our wash house dates from the early 20th Century. School children are amazed to learn the laundry was once done in a weatherboard room outside the house. Older visitors enjoy seeing a wash house, ‘just like Mum had’.  The wash house includes a display of irons over the generations, plus accessories to help make wash day easier.
