I visited Mayes Cottage with my wife on Thursday 11th June 2015, and we enjoyed every moment of our enlightening guided tour which lasted well over an hour. Mayes Cottage is a charming museum and a monument to the pioneering spirit of the early settlers in Australia. The home is lovingly preserved and furnished with period furniture from the 1920s...

Mayes cottage tells it all. Come here to see the lifestyle of people of the past. Rich culture and values, simplicity in it's best, affluent yet very humble lifestyle these people lived.
