  • I really needed a reservation, but i was able to take a guided tour with the kindness of the staff. The guide starts every hour from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. You can also get instructions in Japanese. From the 1840s to the 1990s, the houses were actually inhabited, providing a glimpse into the lives of the common people of Australia. I was impressed by the strength of Australians. If you don't burn the flash, you can take pictures, but because it's old, please refrain from taking selfies. There is a person who dropped the smartphone from the selfie stick in the guide, and it was hyahya in the going to break the cultural property. At last... Thank you very much for your kindness and kind hospitality.
