Take a journey back in time with a self-guided or guided tour of Historic Roto House and discover one of the very few remaining nineteenth century buildings in Port Macquarie.

From the moment you pass the picket fence and walk onto the bull-nosed verandah of Roto House, it feels as though you've stepped back in time. Walking through the front door flanked by ruby leadlight windows, you'll enter a grand hallway decorated with cast iron lamps suspended from the ceiling .

Built in 1890, Roto House was home to John Flynn, a land surveyor, his wife Jessie and six children. This 11 room weatherboard house constructed from local red mahogany was occupied by his family right up until 1979. It's still lovingly maintained by the National Parks and Wildlife Service to this day. Many of the family’s belongings, papers and photographs are preserved and displayed throughout the house.

Wedding ceremonies or events can be held in the grounds of Roto House Historic Site. The house and gardens make a unique backdrop for any celebration, ensuring your photos will be special. Bus tours by arrangement and there's plenty of space for a picnic and bird or koala spotting.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
