A STEP BACK IN TIME

Garroorigang is open on a daily basis for guided tours by either groups or individuals.

Visitors are shown through the home by a member of the family who will set the scene with a brief outline of the homestead's history before conducting visitors through the home.

In each of the rooms your guide will tell you about particularly interesting items and the stories behind them and the people who have lived in Garroorigang.

Bookings are necessary for groups of 10 persons or more but individuals, families etc do not need to book ahead.

For individual visitors, especially those travelling any distance, it is wise however to call ahead (02 4822 1912) as being a family home, there will be occasions when there are commitments which require us to close the home to casual visitors.

Normally opening hours are 9.30am to 12.30 pm and 1.30 to 4.30 pm.

We are closed on Christmas Day, Good Friday and ANZAC Day.

There is a fee for entry which is applied to the conservation of the home and its contents.

Current rates are: Adults $12 per person, Group rate (10 or more) $10 per person Children (12 to 18) $5, Family with small children $25.

Bookings are necessary for Coach groups and groups of ten or more. To arrange group tours please contact us

In the winter months (1 June-31 August) guided tours for casual visitors are restricted to weekends between the hours of 10.00am-4.00pm. Bookings for Coach visits and Group tours (10 persons or more) continue to be accepted as usual during the winter period.
