Tranby House or Peninsula Farm as it was known, was built in 1839 for yeoman farmer and Wesleyan lay preacher Joseph Hardey, his wife Anne and family. Situated on a rise above the banks of the picturesque Swan River, Tranby is a unique example of colonial farmhouse architecture. A major attraction is the property's gently sloping lawns and gardens featuring two magnificent English Oak trees, both over a century old. The property is furnished to reflect the style prevailing in the period 1800-1850. On display are original Hardey family pieces, among them a regency brass bed (c.1810) and antique polished medicine chest.
