Sharam Cottage

Reviewed By pathwinder

Beautiful historic home and garden. Inexpensive, can buy fresh produce grown in the garden, i think it's run by volunteers and they do an amazing job keeping the place maintained.

Mary MacKillop Interpretive Centre

Reviewed By Fadden2904 - Canberra, Australia

There is the Mary MacKillop Interpretive Centre, a replica of the original home and the her first school classroom altogether. There is a $5 entry fee but should not be missed. You do get to ‘walk in her shoes’ for this amazing journey. Sister Mary was obviously a very focussed and strong willed individual who made some amazing changes to the Catholic faith.
