Why locals recommend it
One of Sydney’s remaining 19th century mansions, this feels like a country estate in the middle of the city, surrounded by period-style gardens and wooded grounds. The sprawling parkland has been restored by the Sydney Living Museum, so the plants are faithful to when it was originally created. Plus, there are harbour views, chickens, a goat—and free entry! To bring your experience to another level, take High Tea in the Vaucluse House Tearooms. Surrounded by beautiful architecture and looking onto the gardens, the teas are at 10 am Wednesday through Sunday. Be sure to reserve ahead.
Tips from locals
The beautiful architecture and old world charm of one of Sydney's colonial houses host a variety of event throughout the year or allows visitors during the days.
Within a four minute walk of Fitzwilliam Rd. Stroll amongst the historic gardens of historic Vaucluse House and have lunch at the fully licensed restaurant .
Lovely old house that gives you a great feel for how people lived here in that time. Very nice setting and cafe. Delightful harbour beach across the road.

“A one-stop shop with a great selection of boutique and organic wines. The lovely little shop is a bottle shop, deli and cake shop all rolled into one. So, while you're there, match your wine with some cheese, deli fares, and maybe even a cake or two if a last minute celebration is in order. In terms of deli purchase suggestions: go for the Bangalow Cheese, sourced from the Byron Bay area.”
