Historic Homes and Gardens of Sydney’s East
With horticulturalist Helen Young, spend a day exploring some of Sydney’s most picturesque historic houses and uncover the hidden treasures of their elegantly curated gardens.
Enjoy a private guided tour of Lindesay, Sydney’s oldest Gothic-Revival style home nestled in the harbourside suburb of Darling Point, with its stunning Georgian interiors and fine collection of English and colonial furniture. Admire the sweeping grounds and elegant parterre garden in the company of one of the home’s garden experts.
Visit the picturesque estate of Vaucluse House, one of Sydney’s few 19th century mansions and Australia’s first official house museum. Enjoy a guided horticulturalist-led tour of its original gardens and the lush and secluded grounds which span over 10 hectares. Then, delight in a visit to the seldom-opened Bronte House, whose magnificent Gothic-style cottage features large manicured grounds that merge seamlessly into Bronte Gully.
