A little bit about 'The Anchorage' from the owners;
The original house was built in the mid 1940’s. The property was level ground and they carted sand in wheelbarrows and built up the block to what it is today. The timber was milled on the island and you can still see in the old section of the house the original old round beams. Access to the house up to the 1970’s was through the back as there was no road.. Our family came over for holidays from the 1950’s when we caught the Hayles boats from the city which was a great adventure except in rough weather. Once the barges started running we bought an old car and travelled to Amity on the old sand tracks – getting bogged was standard practice. We hope you enjoy your stay in our house and add to the good memories it holds for us
