Tours include:


Come to Gaol and find out about law and order in Colonial days.  Experience the cramped conditions in the gaol cells.  In the prisoner’s Day Room, view an exhibition of early trades, plus some fascinating artefacts.


A visit to the quaint early settler’s cottage is a real step back in time.  In this cottage, ex convict Edward Taylor, wife Emma, and their numerous children once lived.  What was life like before electricity, running water and inside toilets?


The wash house dates from the early 20th Century.  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’.
