William Charles Wentworth looms as a giant over Vaucluse House, his exploits and legacy still relevant to this day. But what about the rest of the Wentworth family, at times socially ostracised due to their convict ancestry? In this tour we pay attention to the voices of the wider family – William’s wife Sarah, and their ten children. Using original sources we explore the family dynamics, hear from those who are rarely heard, and finally discover if Sarah really did forbid William to have goats at Vaucluse House.
Join us for this night time tour and wander the candlelit rooms before enjoying a glass of wine in front of the fire in the colonial kitchen.
