A well-maintained and thoughtfully curated mid-nineteenth century family. Said to be one of the oldest buildings of its kind in Australia. Interesting architectural features which are thoroughly explained. Enthusiastic, well-informed staff. Easy to reach by public transport from central Sydney. Well worth a visit.

Best to catch bus number 325 from the city. The nearest ferry stop is Watsons Bay, but that is a 30 minute walk away.

Hi Margaret, the tours are run by volunteers so unsure of the time. Best to go to their website and contact them directly. You have to pay an entry fee.
