Umbrellas and all bags (including handbags) must be cloaked as the house and its contents are extremely fragile.

Visitors with low mobility can take the guided tour in a people mover. There is wheelchair access to the ground floor of the main house and portable ramps are available. For visitors unable to access the upstairs rooms, captioned photographs are provided.
We are always happy to try and accommodate individual visitors with specific needs into our regular guided tours, but we are best able to do that if you call ahead to let us know about any particular requirements you have. For groups with specific needs, we can develop customised tours to support those needs. Please call ahead to arrange on +61 2 9635 9488.
Our curriculum-linked programs for primary students explore daily life in colonial times, and how the land has been used and represented in art. Tours for secondary, tertiary and adult education groups can be booked by appointment.
