    A lot of the times I went past, it was looking a bit run down and I seem to remember the grounds were over grown, but now it looks like it has been spruced up. It’s the house on the road out of Murwillumbah that takes you to Numinbah Valley isn’t it or I have I got it confused with another house?

  • Ummm !! ..Lisnagar House is on Queensland Rd ,which links into Tomewin Rd ..it is not far from the showground at murwillumbah .I am sure you have the right house though as it has looked a little overgrown & you almost miss it when you are driving through ! ..cheers xx

    Yeah thats it. It’s right near a sharp bend and there is all bamboo around it in parts. There is a creek or a bit of a river near it too. Do you know what the hours are on Sundays, please? Thanks.

  • You got it !! .. well done – you pass the test ! ..open Sundays I think 10am – 3pm . There is a small entrance fee , but includes tea & coffee etc ..x

    Hi Gail,
    I think this place looks even better when the Jacarandas are in bloom! I first found it and shot it on black and white film in 1982, when it was still lived in by Terry and his aunt. This angle was the best I could do then, too. I love this place to bits, and you;ve done a great shot here.
    Regards, Bill

  • Hi Bill Thanks heaps for the great comment ..I agree with you , it does look better with the jacarandas in bloom ..maybe we can all go back when they are in flower ! ..in the mean time I would like to see the black & white version … really glad you like this pic ..HUGE THANKYOU for the fave – cheers xx
