  • If you can get to Vaucluse House it is a time capsule that maintains the world of the Wentworths, who were the original owners of the estate, and a very significant family in the early days of NSW...  more »
  • Convenient stop about halfway through Watsons Bay to Rose Bay leg of the walk along harbour shore. 45 minute guided tour of the house was OK, but didn't go into much detail, plus gardens and stables.....  more »

  • My favourite living museum in Australia. Had a great lunch in the tea rooms and our tour guide was lovely. Been here many times and will come back again. Fascinating back story and amazing house. Thanks for the great day.
  • A hidden place surrounded by water and gardens. A great place to learn a bit more history. However, we were a bit disappointed at the tea house - service wasn't good, meals were slow. But high tea at other tables looked good and were served very quick. We should have ordered high tea instead of meals.
