Tranby House / Peninsular Farm, Maylands

20151102 Tranby Front DoorTranby House also now known as Peninsular Farm in Maylands, Perth. This is I think the front door as is has a large (I drew it a bit too large) iron door knocker on the front, a brass round knob handle and an old fashioned key hole. The stone plaque attached to the wall reads “Tranby house was built early in 1830 by Joseph Hardy, An experienced yeoman farmer from Yorkshire who arrived in Western Australia by the ship Tranby. during January of that year and settled upon this spot. This home was the first to be established in the district and this memorial has been erected the the Perth Road Board to mark that event.”

The house sits on the banks of the Swan river and is a very peaceful and quiet spot with a great cafe. The house is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
