Fantastic and knowledgeable guides - even had a personal tour on a quiet Sunday. Lovely way to spend the day as a family taking in an iconic piece of Sydney’s history. Great it is still here to experience!
Vaucluse House is part of the Sydney Living Museums located in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. Whilst not built by the Wentworth family it was the home of William Charles Wentworth. The house was purchased by the state government in 1910 & opened to the public in 1912. Today 9 hectares of the original 208 hectares remains. Stroll through the gardens and the original stables. View the interior with lavish furnishings.
Beautiful! Such a hidden treasure in amongst the flowers and greenery of Vaucluse. As well as having a delightful high tea you can loose yourself in the grounds. The flourishing gardens take you away from the big smoke atmosphere only 5mins away. The house is stunning packed with history. The free tour is well worth it and it’s fun for all ages!
We loved our time there, we had the audio guide but the experience came to live in our walking tour. We had Harriet doing a fantastic talk with us introducing us to the customs, the characters as well as the perks and trials of living rich in the old world. She was our highlight for the day, so knowledgeable and yet so personable. At one point when she introduced herself as Harriet, I thought that must be a make-up name to get our brains to go back in time....
Beautiful lighting at night! Went to a special event at night and it is a magical place. Gives a sense for what Sydney would of been a long time ago.
