Heritage Listed Enderslea Farm in Chittering Valley is only 1 hour from Perth City via Tonkin Hwy. Henry and Sarah Morley bought the land and built the cottage in 1853 and all visitors are welcome to walk around the property and visit the cottage with its many vintage quilts, fine domestic medicine objects & the wonderful Kitchenalia collection all on display. Convicts built the large stone barn in the 1860s and it gives a wonderful sense of history to the play. There is an interesting Buddist Temple nearby or the local Bindoon Museum has lots of objects to admire. Make a day of your visit to Chittering.
