We visited on a Sunday, when nothing special or school holiday activities were happening. This means that you get a standard experience which was very good. We were part of a guided tour, which was go... more »

I’d would have bragged about once been a local until I couldn’t find it. The address - 356 Annangrove Road - is actually off Windsor Road heading towards Windsor from Castle Hill and not on the Annang... more »
There's not much to see here - at least if there's no special event on. It may be better during school holidays. Visited on a normal weekend and went on the tour of the house. It was dark in the daytime as the shutters are kept shut to preserve the interior but the lights weren't working. Bring a torch (or use your phone's torch). The school house layout was interesting and it was well lit so you could actually see well inside.
Visited Rouse Hill House today with my 17 year old daughter and have to say the whole experience was fabulous. Thank you to our wonderful guide whose name I didn't get but whose enthusiasm for historical homes, and particularly her knowledge of their social context was without peer. I loved the way that the home exhibited a family context throughout a number of generations and the way the guide was able to put it so beautifully in context. I also loved the fact that the home did not try to obscure it's past but showed the changes through the generations ( look at how electric lighting was introduced; look at the wall paper; curtains and frescos. (sorry if I am being a spoil sport) It would be great if the rest of the home could be made available to the public, particularly the kitchen and that very mysterious downstairs area that my daughter was particularly intrigued by. One question, having grown up on a farm, and having visited many runs of the period I am wondering about the shearing shed. I have never seen a shed so close to a homestead; particularly one within metres of the Kitchen. (think sheep dung; flies etc). I understand from our wonderful guide that sheep farming was not a major enterprise, but am very interested as to why the shearing shed was located in such close proximity to the home. Thank you to the State Government for supporting such a fabulous project' and thank you to your staff and volunteers who gave us such a memorable experience and further cemented by daughter's love of Australian History. I don't often post comments, but my experience today was something special - you have a future volunteer and member.in the making.
Beautifully preserved historically significant residence managed by Sydney Living Museums. Programs are run regularly are are great fun, particularly 'Earn Your Tucker', which highlights historical processes for making food on the farm.

There's a corrugated tin shed at the base of Rouse Hill farm - the visitors centre - where there's a very welcoming team of historic houses guides. We enjoyed a fascinating tour from an insightful young woman - her passion really brought the experience to life. There are tours on the hour - these are worthwhile. The house suffers a little with disrepair - the upstairs is off limits because of the fragile nature of the landing. Still - you can visit via virtual tour when back at the visitors centre. Come here for a glimpse into our colonial heritage. Unfortunately there's no food served here - save some basic tea and coffee making facilities - and that's a real shame as I believe such a facility would round out the whole experience. Farm is open limited hours 1030-330 and only on the weekend.
Great time. Well run by volunteers
