Didn't read the opening times until after the event. Got the day right but closed at 2pm, we were there 2.15!

So disappointed, says it's open on Wednesdays 10-2, we turned up today, Wednesday at 10.45 and it's closed.



Worth a stop. $5 each. Open Wednesday and Saturday. Beautiful lush shaded garden and the house contains interesting crockery and furniture. It is such as energy efficient home. The exhibits and information in the larger shed really complements the story of Katherine. Some great old photos. Thankyou lovely volunteers.
