This is a great little spot to visit. A well maintained historical house in beautiful surrounds. About 20 mins from Mackay. There is an entry fee that helps with maintainable costs.

It is great to step back in time, the volunteers do a fantastic job. The gardens are amazing. It would be great it the council could restore some of the old buildings so it is there for many generations to come.
