A scene from the large parlour / dining room of Tanilba House, Tanilba Bay NSW. This historic home was built by Lieutenant William Caswell …utilising convict labour he started with a slab hut in 1829, expanding to a cottage in 1831, and laid the foundations of Tanilba House in 1837, built of quartz porphyry stone which was quarried nearby. The mortar came from lime produced by burning oysters. It still even has its own small gaol cell out the back where convicts were held when they misbehaved.
There is talk of the Governess still haunting the homestead … ?!
