Proof that history isn't any less fascinating for being comparatively recent, Calthorpes' House is a time capsule from the first days of the national capital, the 1920s.
Situated among the elegant homes and embassies on Canberra's Mugga Way, it is perfectly preserved down to the clothes in the wardrobes and the household bills in the pantry. You can even inspect the air raid shelter!
