Vaucluse House - Review
Among the places of heritage and great historical significance in Australia, the Vaucluse House is a very important estate in Sydney which has gradually become a large visiting destination for tourists. It bears the design prevalent during the Gothic Revival era and comprises of large rooms, kitchen wing section, stable sheds and housing wings. As the detailed features of the interior, the kitchen wing section is adjoined and accessorized with a scullery, a dairy and larder, numerous cellars, a pantry room, the housekeeper’s room, the family history room, and a large drawing room. The rooms for having meals in are the breakfast room, the dining room, and the tea room. The first floor is comprised of the bedrooms for the Wentworths, and the second floor consists of the children’s bedrooms. Make Sure to visit the tearooms as they are a nice way to travel back in time.

Vaucluse House, Sydney Reviews
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.
Our son was married here in the gardens in April and we found it so beautiful that we had to come back a few months later to have a proper look around. We took the self-guided tour inside the house and stables, $30 for a family which is cheap when you think of the cost to keep a place like this maintained. We looked at it as more of a donation. The house itself is a very unusual design but beautifully preserved and it gives a wonderful insight into life in the 1800s. Would highly recommend a visit to a real gem of yesteryear Sydney.
The place is over priced. We payed 55$ per person for 10 small pieces of sandwich and sweet stuff. In addition, the place was growded with youth having party and drunk. So is the place classified as family place, party place, youth place. Despite the environment is cool and nature is nice. But i won't recommended it unless if someone want to waste money.
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.
Well preserved colonial era house with a fascinating history. Filled with antiques, many original or of the era. Guides are friendly, warm and knowledgeable of the grounds. If you're interested in early Sydney history, local to the area or just want a good day's activity in the eastern suburbs then Vaucluse house is a worthy trip.
