Earn Your Tucker: Vaucluse House

The sun is up and it’s time to have fun and muck in to get the chores done.

Help feed the chickens, collect the eggs, grind the grain and make the butter, then sit down to your well-earned tucker!

Enjoy the following activities as you join us for this family program:

  • Learn how to do the ‘egg test’ to ensure your egg is fresh.

  • Churn the butter, wash off the buttermilk and pat the butter into shape.

  • Clear out the old stalls where the horses were once kept.

  • Visit the laundry and get busy washing clothes.

When the work is done, enjoy your well-earned tucker! Includes bread, butter, honey, tea/coffee and flavoured milk.

Please note that this program will run in wet weather, so bring appropriate clothing. A hat and sunscreen are recommended, as significant parts of the program are conducted outdoors. Tickets are required for both children and adults.
