Other information

Children & families

Both inside and out, there are plenty of things for kids to do. Inside you can go everywhere and explore the house as if it were your own. Outside, there are colonial games such as quoits, hoop and stick, cup and ball, knuckles and croquet. There’s even some chores you can do! Smell the herbs in the kitchen garden and explore the garden paths.

During the school holidays, we offer a range of holiday programs and tours.

We have baby change facilities available.

Things to remember

Elizabeth Farm is a barrier-free museum. There are no locked doors or fragile pieces of  furniture, so you can wander freely through the house as if it were your own.

You may like to wear enclosed shoes as the sandstone pavers around the house are very uneven. Some rooms may be dimly lit depending on the weather and time of year.
