Innes Ruins, Port Macquarie

The Innes Ruins house is one of the most historic sites in Australia. It was built by Major Archibald Clunes Innes, an influential settler in what was to become New South Wales. The house was built by convicts in several stages between 1831 and 1843.

Innes Ruins is managed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, who whilst needing to limit public access because the site is so fragile, would still like people to know more about this historic location, and increase access in as many ways as possible in the future.
