Amazing building , intersting information about the Macqurie and Australia which can be read by the mausoleum, neatly kept. Can be accessed by foot only through a path which takes you through estate property.

A must see slice of Australia on Mull. Maintained by the National Trust of Australia we stumbled on this place on our way to Ben More. It is tranquil and beautifully set amongst simple gardens.
