  • Great to hear the stories about history of the house. Beautiful architecture, ashamed they couldn't finish it.
  • Get to see the preserved butterflies here. They are awesome.
  • We arrived at a time it was actually closed. The member of staff who was closing up at the time asked us if we came all the way down to see the house and showed us around despite being closed that day. This was incredibly friendly and a really great experience also for my mother who was visiting from The Netherlands.
  • Somehow this house survives today - buried within the urban sprawl of Sydneys eastern suburbs. No expense was spared in making this place - and you can tell no corners were cut or dodgy contractors employed. The suspended staircase inside the house is of particular note. They also do high tea here - and you can find plenty of other interesting goings on at the Sydney Living Museums website. Staff are exceptionally friendly - good place to bring your family when you've been "everywhere" in Sydney city. Tell the kids "devices down - it's time to learn!"
  • The finest house in the colony!

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
