One scone for me, one pupcake for you
High tea is a wonderful thing and to be able to enjoy a relaxing afternoon with your best canine furrbaby in a relaxing setting, while having lots of fun and enjoying delectable delights can only make for a fantastic Sunday.

The country home of the Kingston family, Kingston House was first constructed in 1840 as a three-room building built from prefabricated timber panels shipped from England. In its early years, the house and property were leased by the Kingston family to Samuel Oakley, a farmer. However, George Kingston (Deputy Surveyor to Colonel Light and owner) returned to the property in 1851 and set about improving the existing building, adding a two-storey eastern wing which resulted in the substantial building we see today. The house remained in the family until the death of George's daughter-in-law Lucy in 1919. The South Australian Government purchased the property in the 1920s and restored it in 1983.
