“Don't miss this 1800's charmer.”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Well done NSW Parks and Wildlife for keeping this slice of history alive. Each room tells a story and the tales of the Flynn family and the home make this a wonderful location to visit for those interested in local history. Not a place for young children.

If you're into this sort of thing then go there. What a great way to find out about a place. We loved it and the volunteer staff were absolutely wonderful; very friendly and informative.

“History and nostalgia”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

A lovely glimpse back in time, knowledgeable and friendly volunteers to answer any questions. The history of the house and the Flynn family - a revelation as to where the name came from. The restoration and recreation are a true testament to the dedicated and talented team of volunteers. Well worth a visit and don't forget to leave a small donation to help keep the house open.
