HomeRoomsManning room
Originally the Drawing Room, and named for the family that built all three homesteads on the larger Manning Estate, the original ‘Home Farm’ to the north of the lake, ‘Davilak House’ to the south of the lake, built for Lucius Manning, and this ‘Manning Tree House’, built for Azelia Manning, now the Azelia Ley Museum.

On display in this room is some history of the Manning family, including the newly conserved 100 year old wedding dress of Azelia, and information and imagery relating to Davilak, where she was born and married.

The displays also reflect the traditional activities that took place and artefacts from this era, donated by the local communities.
