Around 1850, the Customs House was built on the northern bank of the Macintyre River, a modest three-room cottage with detached kitchen, a fire precaution of the day. Its shingled roof covered sturdy walls of pitsawn timber, morticed top and bottom into slots, a building technique which declined towards the end of the 19th century.
While you're there don't forget to visit Martha's Cottage which was built in 1875 and now stands beside Customs House.
