Roto is a substantial family homestead constructed in 1890 for the princely sum of 667 pounds. John Edmund Flynn, a surveyor, whose profession and educated background gave him considerable status in Port Macquarie, built the house for his family.
It was located on 60 acres of land that was then the south-eastern edge of the town and was occupied by three generations of the Flynn family until 1969, when the NPWS purchased the land.
Today the house houses a display of 19th-century furnishings. It is open daily to the public by the Friends of Roto Volunteers.
Visit the nearby koala hospital and look for koalas in the trees. Enjoy a picnic lunch in the spacious gardens or on most days of the year volunteers can take you on a tour of the house. Wheelchair access is available to Roto House and verandahs.
