The Most Wonderful Time at Vaucluse House
The fresh 3m Radiata Pine, kindly donated by the NSW Forestry Corporation, and installed in the Drawing Room with the assistance of the Sydney Living Museums' horticulturists, almost brushes the ceiling.
The tree was decorated by the team at Vaucluse House, including horticulturalist Steve Goldsworthy, assistant curator Mel Flyte and visitor & interpretation officers Liane Ades, Harriet Donnelly and Caitlin Jamison, under the careful direction of portfolio curator Joanna Nicholas.
Appropriately bedecked and scenting the room, the tree took pride of place at our Members’ Christmas event on the evening of Saturday 17 December, when the Drawing Room was brought to life with Christmas carols and other period music, played on our antique Collard & Collard piano.
The Christmas Tree at Vaucluse House will grace the Drawing Room until at least Wednesday 28 December. Don’t miss your opportunity to admire this once-a-year spectacle.
Vaucluse House is open 10am-4pm every day Wednesday 21st December – Sunday 29th January, except for Christmas Day.
