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 and large-print and braille versions of floor plans are currently unavailable.

We are always happy to try and accommodate individual visitors with specific needs, but we are best able to do that if you call ahead to let us know about any particular requirements you have. Please call ahead on +61 2 9989 8020.

Venue hire
