Worth a visit and a walk round to the "waterfall" close by. Friendly warden collecting the small entrance fee. House isn't furnished so you have to use your imagination. High level timeline and some other bits of information dotted about.
Like others have said, buildings aren't open Monday through Wednesday. But one can walk around. We saw Magpies and crows whose caw was different then those we have in North America. A short hike takes you to Meekadarabee Falls.
A great spot to see a little bit of history. We did the short walk to the nearby falls and really enjoyed it. The track to the falls is nicely done (paved and board walk) and took about 20 mins or so. The falls weren't flowing whilst we were there in early January 2017 but still a nice place to... 更多
We visited to find it is only open for very short periods of time. We enjoyed looking in the windows of the homestead and the surrounds. We went to the 2 waterfalls along a well made path. The history behind EllensBrook is inspiring.

Nearby Meekadarabee falls are a significant site for local Aborigines with the legend of two dead lovers who live in the cave beneath the falls. Don't expect a wow... 更多

The homestead of the first settlers here is just a small building but wondering in the few... 更多
We visited on a sunny but cold winter morning. Although the house was closed we were able to peer inside and wander around the grounds. Fantastic location, lovely view, lots of water in the stream and pouring over the weir. Definitely worth investigating the river, then do go down to the end of the road and look out over the... 更多
Afternoon trip here. .....to see part of the history of emmigration to Australia.The property was closed when we arrived but we viewed the house and garden with the added bonus of sunshine for a picnic .Spotted a kookaburra and a kangaroo close to which for us is exciting. A trail walk to the waterfall made this a special visit.
