  • Ayers House Museum is a great spot right in the centre of Adelaide. As they say, it is the finest Victorian-era house in South Australia. There are three levels of awesomeness to explore, across the bedrooms, dining rooms and offices. My favourite room is Henry Ayer's office on the lower level. There's a giant and awesome desk, beautiful architecture, and being below ground is always a few degrees cooler than upstairs.

  • Beautiful. It’s not his stuff but the house is very nice. Makes you think what it was like back then. Must have been rich. Ian was lovely. Thank you for my private tour Ian.

  • A relic if the Victorian era, but unlike the UK National Trust, thus us much more hands on. You can sit in the chairs and get much more from the experience. A charming house.

  • A lovely bit of old Adelaide. Check out the amazing painted ceilings.

  • Wonderful to visit and hear about the history of a Victorian era house. Rosemary was our Guide and she was so knowledgeable and patience with us. Highly recommend a visit to see the house and meet the volunteers who work there.
