Meet the gardens team

Bright and early every morning, Sydney Living Museums’ team of horticulturists can be found at one of our historic gardens.

These range from the harbourside estate and Victorian kitchen garden at Vaucluse House to the wide rural expanse of Rouse Hill House & Farm and the humble inner-city courtyards at Susannah Place. Under their care and expertise, each garden tells a living story of the lives, tastes and aspirations of the people who created and enjoyed it.
