Dawn’s Surprise

Calthorpes’ House is situated on the crest of a hill on Mugga Way. To avoid an accident risk, buses should not drop students off on the hillcrest. Buses should drop students further down the street, at a point where the bus is clearly visible to other traffic. The bus will not be able to park on Mugga Way. Parking is available on Torres, Wickham or Vancouver Streets. There is limited parking for cars on site at Calthorpes’ House, just follow the circular driveway around to the parking area.

Join seven year old Dawn Calthorpe as she searches for a place to hide her sister’s birthday present. Will it fit under the radio? Or in Dawn’s bedroom? Journey around the house to discover the present and play the kind of games that Dawn and Del played so long ago.

Why not make it a day and visit both Calthorpes’ House and Mugga-Mugga Cottage. A visit to both properties will illustrate the differences in the daily lives of two families, one which enjoyed the luxuries of all the ‘mod cons’ and one which still lived a simple, rural life.
