Australia's oldest house, rich with history and still showing much of its original structures and charm (barring a few modifications for modernity sake). Much of the interiors items are recreation but accurate to the era. A few rooms recount the history of the house and the families that owned it, as well as the efforts of volunteers and eventually Sydney Living Museums to restore it.
Of all the living museums in Sydney, this is definitely one of the best given its claim alone as the oldest standing colonial era building in Australia.
It is a typical epitome of Australia’s early colonial history. Those who want to learn about Australian history are worth a visit. There is a guide service. There are toilets, cafes.
Not bad if just for relax. The only problem is not much thing to eat nearby, so if planning to go for a while just take your picnic pad and some sandwiches to fill your stomach.
My wife and daughter had a wonderful time here. This is a timeless place right in the middle of busy Parramatta.
There is plenty of history to contemplate, a lot of hand-on activities for the little ones too.
They have done a fantastic job in presenting this heritage home / place, recommend for the entire family.
Staff are so lovely and accomodating of our requests with Devonshire tea, and the grounds and house itself are always gorgeous
Great tour guide, excellent preservation of local history.
Really enjoyed our time here . So glad it has been preserved . The guides were very informative and lovely ladies
Well this was a wonderful surprise. I took my tweenager niece and two young sons. All three had a ball. They got involved in convict servant activities like clothes washing and maintaining the veggie garden.
The most spectacular thing about this place is by far the sensational homemade scones in the cafe.
