  • So beautiful! Dianne, our tour guide was wonderful and so knowledgable :) We utterly enjoyed our visit and our high tea at the Tearooms was lovely! A bit of escapism for me - loved it!
  • Is perfectly located on Sydney's Harbour and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. You can have breakfast, lunch or high tea. Good service and nice food.
  • Great set up, beautiful house, lovely gardens and close to the beach. Nice place for a picnic whilst taking in a bit of history.
  • I agree that a guided tour really provides the best experience of this historic home. Built by William Charles Wentworth, one of the great men of early colonial Australia, a visit here will get you a true idea of how the elite lived back then. If thinking of visiting during School Holidays, aim for the end of the final week when the crowds tend to have vanished. We did so and only shared the tour with one couple. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and our hour-long tour was expanded to almost double. It only cost us $17 for a family. So excellent value.
  • Great place to visit whilst in Sydney. One of the Sydney living museums and definitely recommend visiting all of them. Staff is really friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
