Notes Relating to Accommodation:

Morning Star Estate’s Country House

Morning Star Estate’s Country House Rooms have an interesting history. The dormitory wing of the historical ‘Morning Star Boys Home’ circa 1936, was transformed into a 20 room Mt Eliza Country House, that opened in January 2002.

Originally there were 30 dormitory rooms, and a decision was made to convert every second room into two ensuites. As a consequence the size of the rooms are small compared to guests’ anticipation of accommodation these days. The Country House consists of 15 bedrooms with double beds, 4 bedrooms with queen beds and 1 bedroom with a queen bed and a spa bath. For socialising and enjoying your time here we have several living areas and various outside areas for relaxing and enjoying the scenery.
