Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

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

Built by surveyor John Flynn in 1891, 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.

Volunteers are available to answer questions and show you around if you’re part of a pre-booked tour group.

Weddings can also be booked here and there’s plenty of space to set up a marquee. The house and gardens make a unique backdrop for any celebration, ensuring your photos will be special.

**To keep visitors safe ALL camping in NSW national parks now requires a booking. For day visitors, please plan ahead and visit outside of peak periods (11am and 2pm). Check park alerts and visit COVID-19 updates for more information before visiting any park – www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au **
