If you have an interest in either Sydney's colonial history and / or early architecture this is the place to visit.
Set in a large reserve, the homestead and its remaining farm land present an accurate sense of colonial living as it was in the late 1800s for the land owning gentry.
It's not a modern interpretation, but a family home that was bequested intact, having not been redecorated but preserved as it was right down to wall paper at the turn of the 19th century. It's just as the family left it with all of their possessions still in place.
The Historic Homes curators are careful to retain rather than restore here, so be prepared for a journey in time and to learn from reality rather than interpretation.
I have visited historic homes around the world and never seen one like this, so intact and unspoiled.
