Family Fair

Playfulness and merriment abounds as Family Fair returns for another year.

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.

A full program of activities, including timings, will be published closer to the event to help you plan your day.


 

A day full of activities


 

Shopping

Shop from a hand-picked selection of market stalls selling high quality children’s merchandise including Sydney Living Museum’s pop-up shop.

Food and drink

Pack a home crafted picnic or enjoy a bite to eat from one of the many food vendors selling traditional country fare.

Bring along a refillable water bottle and keep hydrated at Sydney Water’s refill stations.

Parking

Limited free parking is available in one of our paddocks with entry located off Guntawong Road.

What to wear

We recommend wearing enclosed shoes and clothing suitable for walking around a farm property, and bring wet weather gear if appropriate. A hat and sunscreen are recommended, as significant parts of the program are conducted outdoors.

Visitors with low mobility can take a ride in the people mover from the carpark to the top of the site; and there is wheel chair access to the house. Please note, that the dirt paths surrounding the house are fairly uneven.

Please note that no pets with the exception of special service dogs (i.e. guide dogs) are allowed on site at Rouse Hill House & Farm.
