The historic slab timber gaol is located on a one-acre site, skirted by the Thone River; with the original 1905 Comboyne Police Station. The restoration of the old gaol has helped preserve the rich history of the Comboyne. Wander through the Old Gaol and learn more about the historic site. Old and enchanting places are a special find. So you will enjoy the different experience we have ready to share with you in the very distinctive garden and old gaol.
Over 116 years ago, the structures started to appear and make their presence felt. But it’s the trees and expansive lawn, surrounded by the Thone River that gives Larrikins Lock-up its unique charm.
Come and enjoy wandering around our gardens of mature trees and shrubs of oak, walnut, birch, cedars, bunya pine, rhododendron, wattle, viburnum and weigela. Bowerbirds live here and share the garden with many other friendly birds. The ducks often float by to chat to the horses across the river, while our shy platypus snuggles in his burrow most of the day.
They have a variety of healthy plants available that are locally conditioned, drought hardy and suitable for attracting native birds to your garden and unique handmade woodcraft items in their stunning retail centre made from native salvaged local timber.
