Calthorpes' House

Visit Calthorpes’ House and step back to life in early Canberra.

Not far from the city centre, this Spanish Mission Style house was built in 1927 and is a window into an almost forgotten world. This genuine survivor is a treasure house of domestic history. Original furnishings, household appliances and photos all tell a vivid story of family life in Canberra`s early days. Don’t miss the Second World War bomb shelter in the backyard. Education and community programs are available and bookings for groups only are required.
