We encourage visitors to explore the house on their own, with our friendly guides on hand to provide information or help if needed.

Group bookings

Groups of 10 or more can book a 45-minute guided tour but this needs to be arranged beforehand. For information and bookings call +61 2 9989 8020

Accessibility

Mobility

The house is not accessible by wheelchair and while people with limited mobility can access the site, there is a set of stairs (about 15) that leads to the main floor of the house. There is no opportunity to sit down within the house as much of the furniture is original and fragile. The grounds and carpark are quite rough terrain.

Hearing and vision

The introductory video is captioned. Large-print and braille versions of floor plans are available.

Tours

We are always happy to try and accommodate individual visitors with specific needs into our regular guided tours, but we are best able to do that if you call ahead to let us know about any particular requirements you have. For groups with specific needs, we can develop customised tours to support those needs. Please call ahead to arrange on +61 2 9989 8020.
