Now you can stay over in the Old Town at the Big Hole and experience the Diamond City as it was 100 years ago! Accommodation in Kimberley will never be the same again!

Experience luxurious lodging at the brand new New Rush Guesthouse in the heart of the Old Town in Tucker Street. This original “tin” house was relocated from 19 Tucker Street to where it now stands. The house dates back to 1878 and was owned by the Holmes family until they sold it to a Mr Binyon who in turn sold it in 1913 when the Yeowart family moved in. The Yeowart family, one of whom resided here until 1973, sold the building to the Museum in 1975. The original Mr Harold Holmes (of Holmes' Garage) was born in this house in 1904, the doctor in attendance at his birth being Dr EO Ashe (his surgery forms part of the displays in the Old Town).
Property Facilities:
