  • Finally ticked this one off my Canberra bucket list. I did the tour with a neighbour and was very pleased with the experience. The guides were knowledgeable and passionate and added a lot of context and insight to what we were able to see - well worth the $7. This is a wonderfully preserved piece of early Canberra and a great insight into life in the 40s/60s.
  • Glad I went! Interstate visitors and I thought we would be in and out in three minutes...we were there almost an hour! We arrived just in time for the 45minute tour, it was a small group which made it more personal. The tour guides didnt miss a beat and what an experience. There were children in the group who enjoyed themselves and the history of this home. The tour guides even made it more interesting for the kids by doing small things like allowing them to ring the service bells. Really enjoyed the experience and glad i finally went!
