In addition to this, the property is home to the most elaborate collection of documents that detail the continuous occupancy by the same family. It is no surprise that this property provides the quintessential countryside experience – all within an hour’s drive from the city.
Explore the expansive farm, its solid stables and the summerhouse to enjoy the experience – the best way being to take a guided tour. Due to the fragility of the property, access to the house is only possible through a guided tour and bookings must be made in advance. Note that tours are offered alongside special events held onsite from time to time.
Pass by the shop to take home a reminder of your visit to one of Sydney’s most amazing cultural destinations; including gifts, cards, souvenirs and books. The farm is also available for hire and is ideal for weddings, corporate events and photography.
