This white painted cottage even dates back to 1860.

The furniture and the huge selection of household items that you can see on photo 3 are from many different homes from Banks Peninsula, so give an impression of much more splendour than the people lived in. In fact, life was hard - but it is nice to see that some people had more than just the basics but also some lovely household items which they could bring from their country of origin to their new home country.

In front of this house you find an old oven in which bread can still be baked today. You can see it on photo 2.
