Grannie Rhodes’ Cottage presents “Turn the key of Time”, a live performance at Richmond, southeast Tasmania.
This 50 minute fascinating professional performance retells Grannie’s true stories. Be transported back to Old England in 1824. Hear of the tribulations of her parents, her two marriages – first to a convict, and then a free man - and discover not only how Grannie lived in this tiny cottage, raising her eleven grandchildren, but also the strange stories involved in the restoration project of the cottage including that of the discovery of the dynamite.
Grannie Rhodes’ Cottage is the only remaining dwelling in Richmond without electricity or water. You can discover what life was like for early colonial and convict settlers in Tasmania as you experience the Bark Hut and see Bernie Tarr’s wonderful sculpture celebrating those brave early women who came to join their convict husbands.
Become part of this extraordinary experience available at 3:00pm or 6:00pm daily, except Tuesdays, or by prior arrangement.
Bookings are recommended to avoid disappointment. Show is discounted with a stay at Mulberry Cottage Unique Accommodation on site.
Richmond is around 30 minutes’ drive (26 kilometres/16 miles) northeast of Hobart.Visit Website
