Wentworth’s body was shipped over from England, arriving in 1873. He was accorded the first ever state funeral in NSW.
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.
