The Sydney Basin sandstone walls are still intact with mortar made from cooked oyster shells and the convict hand huened rafters are exposed with some of the original shingles and plaster lining. It is one of the few buildings left standing in Australia of this age. Kate Grenfell’s novel “The Secret River” is somewhat based on Solomon Wiseman and Cobham Hall.
Hall is now known as the Wisemans Inn Hotel.
