Overview

Walk between two large weeping figs and enter this elegant home. Inside, enjoy the ornately decorated iron balustrades, filigree columns and friezes. Built in 1886, Miegunyah is now set up museum-style to show how folk lived in the 1880s and particularly showing the conditions the women then worked under. Note the fireplace, no stove, in which the woman of the house had to cook meals and heat water for baths. Walk through the wide cedar doorway onto polished pine floors, see lofty ceilings, antiques and marble fireplaces and enjoy the grandeur of this foregone era; note even the silver plate for calling cards.
