Nightlight Tour: Vaucluse House

Part of the Australian Heritage Festival 2020

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Sydney Living Museums has suspended all onsite learning programs until further notice. However, we are re-introducing some onsite public programs at our houses and museums. Visit our Events & Exhibitions page for more details. You can also still discover our places, stories and collections online and across our social channels. Stay connected to be inspired and entertained. 


As the sun goes down and the candles are lit, you will have the chance to experience Vaucluse House in a completely new light.

Tour the house by candlelight to hear about historic food customs and practices, and see how we work with and interpret these throughout the museum today, then join us for refreshments by the kitchen fire.

Then join us for light refreshments in the colonial kitchen.


Licenced event for 18+
