Lovely building, great art - the best Lamington!The house is beautifully restored and free to enter. There''s a lovely collection of William Robinson painthing upstairs, with very friendly and informative staff ready to share knowledge (thank you Joseph!). Finally, the cafe is lovely and has THE BEST Lamington I''ve ever had (fitting as this is the home of the cake!) Thank you!
