Luxury Spa Cottage

Bride and groom can stay in the luxurious spa cottage whilst family and friends enjoy the comfort of five other cottages spread over the convict probation station. The cottages are constructed of brick and sandstone and are complimented by colonial antiques and furniture skillfully handcrafted from selected timbers off the property. All the cottages are self-contained and are fitted with modern amenities. Complete with breakfast provisions for the morning after, your stay here will be unforgettable.

Private family museum

Now run by fifth generation owner Marcus Clark and Maria Stupka, guests are invited to visit the private family museum and to explore convict remains, including a cellblock with an intact solitary confinement cell and the original mess hall. Enjoy two stunning short walks on the property, one that follows the waterfront to the site of a convict jetty and another that goes into the rainforest to the ruins of a convict mill and quarry site.
