Once again, the Mont de Lancey Historic Homestead has opened its doors with another stunning art display in their gallery. Entry is FREE and the items on display are spectacular.

The original family homestead, museum, gallery, blacksmiths and Monty's Tearooms all sit in the stunning grounds of the original acreage of the founding family. It is a beautiful homestead and tours run every day during opening hours. Right now there is also an extraordinary ceramic exhibition on from 4th of July till the 29th of July, 2018.

Take advantage of a browse through the museum or a guided tour of the historic homestead displayed as it used to be in ages gone by. Tour the wooden floor kitchen and see how they used to cook and store food. Then head for the blacksmith's barn. It takes you back to an enchanted time and gives you a wonderful look into Australia's historic past to when the settlers first arrived in the area.

The woodturners and blacksmiths are hard at work on the weekends and they sell their lovely wares as well. I have found many lovely things for my garden at this working forge. There is also the treat of viewing the vintage machinery, which the kids love.

Monty's Tearoom is a melt in the mouth must for a meal. And they are open on the weekends, as well from 10 am to 4 pm. This is a great holiday getaway for the kids as well, with lovely space to run and play and lovely spots to picnic.

Mont de Lancey is a great place to visit, and easy to find. We’ve been there many times, and found it interesting, plus fascinating.
