A visit to Calthorpes’ House will take you back to the time when the Calthorpe Family lived in the house.

Calthorpes’ House offers a range of community programs and events, and education programs at selected times throughout the year.

Original furnishings, household appliances and photos reflect the fashionable ideal of style and taste in the middle class Australian home of the late 1920s.

The delightful gardens at Calthorpes’ House would not be possible without the support
of the Howlong Nursery who supply the
annual seedlings.
