We went there for a great lunch but were blown away by the fabulous museum of the local area, great cars, motorbikes, tractors and everything else needed in the farming area since it was settled.

An excellent museum, full of memorabilia and the history of settlement in this region. A treasure trove of artifacts compiled by current owner and descendant of original Wellstead Family who settled here in mid 1850s. I especially admired the beautiful stone buildings.

Fabulous museum and farm houses, felt very English. The motor bike collection was very good. Coffee excellent, and we went back for lunch the next day, which was delicious.

We took my cousin to visit and it was a trip down memory lane. We could see items from our childhood things our grandparents had. Not your typical museum well worth the visit.

Very interesting accumulation of vintage/heritage memorabilia! The Wellstead family have a rich pioneering history in the area. Nice to potter through and take a trip through the past - some you will remember! The cafe is nice too.
