Thank you for attending Family Fair yesterday. We had unprecedented interest in the event this year, with more than 4000 people in attendance, including 2500 visitors who purchased tickets on the day at the event.
With such a large number of sales on the day, our carpark, food offer and programmed activities were put under significant pressure. We deeply apologise for the inconvenience this caused to our visitors.
We will be working on ways to ensure a quality audience experience for next year’s event and will be reviewing our program to ensure that more visitors can enjoy what is on offer.
We invite you to share your experience and suggestions for ways to develop this event via our event survey.
Once again, we would like to thank everyone for supporting Sydney Living Museums, and for the interest you have shown in our historic properties.
We look forward to announcing a new and improved program for 2019.
Bring the family along to Rouse Hill House & Farm for a day of fun and nostalgia.
Try your hand at a range of old fashioned activities and games including kite flying, jumping sacks and vintage lawn sports.
Experience farm life with our farmer, who will teach you how to feed the cows, ride a Shetland pony, and get up close and personal with the baby animals at the Petting Farm.
Take a sneak peek inside Rouse Hill House and experience the 1880s schoolhouse with school mistress Mrs Fox.
For some quiet time, sit back and relax with story book readings under the fig tree or get crafty at our tinkering station with printed materials derived from our collection.
