The pathways between the buildings near the homestead are sealed and accessible. There is a steep section of path leading from the homestead out to the gardens. Visitors with a disability may ask to park next to the homestead.

The Homestead will be open when we have volunteers available. They will give you a guided tour and tell you about the history of the building and also the story behind the people who built the homestead and lived there. 

The Library is open by appointment.

The Pioneer section is always open.

Access to the Jetty has now been rebuilt with 95 steps down — makes a great fitness test.
