- Established by Richard and Elizabeth Rouse in 1813, this property was occupied continuously by six generations of one family before being taken over by the Historic Houses Trust. The whole site is extremely fragile and can only be accessed through booked, guided tours. Following a lecture and video, visitors then make their way up the paddock to the time-warped Georgian house, gardens, stables, woolshed and outbuildings. Not a tour for the faint-hearted-- wear sensible shoes and a hat-- but few sites in Australia encapsulate the colonial experience with such sensitivity.
