Highfield Historic Site

Access



Highfield Historic Site is located at 143 Greenhills Road. Follow Dovecote Road around the scenic drive or travel north from the centre of town. A 7km scenic loop road circumnavigates the site back to town centre.

As a result of recent conservation and improvement works, the Highfield barn now has a mobility lift that provides access to the upstairs area during functions. The ground floor of the house and the chapel are also wheelchair accessible, but note that cobble stone flooring and steps prevents wheelchair access to other outbuildings. The Highfield site has one accessible toilet.
