Wentworth Mausoleum Walking Tour
This Event Is
Wentworth’s body was shipped home from England, arriving in 1873.
In Sydney he was accorded the first ever state funeral in NSW and was buried alongside three of his children.
Visitors will walk to the family mausoleum located 10 minutes’ walk from Vaucluse House, and hear about the extravagant funeral service and procession that accompanied his body.
Listen to commentary from the colonial newspapers about this great event, and enter the rarely opened mausoleum to hear extracts from the funeral oration extolling Wentworth’s character.
We recommend you wear comfortable walking shoes and a hat, and bring a bottle of water.
