Join us at Rouse Hill House & Farm on Saturday 11 July from 10am – 2pm to celebrate NAIDOC Week.

For many Darug people today, the landscape around Rouse Hill holds sites of cultural significance and the spirits of ancestors.  Join local Darug elders as they share stories and their cultural knowledge of traditional woodcarving.

You can learn to paint a boomerang with Leanne Watson (Chair of the Darug Custodians Aboriginal Corporation) and hear elders talk about the significance of Aboriginal art.

Meet native wildlife with ‘Animals on the Move’ from Featherdale Wildlife Park.

All activities are free.

Tours of Rouse Hill House & Farm will be available from 12pm and normal museum charges will apply.

Play along with us: House Music at Your HouseMonday 17 August 2020

We invite you to join us in a new musical experiment, bringing the music of the 19th century into the 21st century. We’ve delved into the hundreds of popular songs that survive in the collection at Rouse Hill Estate and we’ve also asked some brilliant musicians to help you explore these pieces of music from their homes and in our historic houses.
