I like technology but it would be nice to be able to talk to a real human being, only not listening to a monologue from a tablet whilst taking a tour of this awesome place. Council should make real effort in cleaning adjacent streets.

I was a bit disappointed with Elizabeth Farm. Upon reflection, I think this is due to 2 reasons. Firstly, I was the only solo visitor on a guided tour full of families with little children who seemed more interested in running riot that learning some Australian history in one of the oldest buildings in the country. Secondly, the house is furnished with placeholder furniture which is designed to be touched/sat on/played with etc. While this makes the house more accessible, it also meant there was no real historic atmosphere or sense of connection to those days in the early 1800s when one of the most influential men in NSW lived here. I know it is important for heritage places to not just be old furniture gatehring dust behind barriers and display cases but I felt at Elizabeth Farm they have gone to the other extreme where it felt a bit fake to be honest. The staff were all lovely though; it just turned out not to be the attraction for me.

I have often said that this is the most idyllic place in the Sydney area and I do love this building. It seems to me now that it has been cleaned up and perhaps overly so. It is all slick and span on the outside and the tour guide is an iPad. I did not use it but my husband did. The rooms are well presented and furnished of the period. It is an extensive house. And the gardens are wonderful. So it was worth the hike from the station even though Parramatta council does its best to hide its historic buildings or at least not put up much in the way of signage. Perhaps they will when they have finished rebuilding the CBD!!!Anyway, I still like it.

Large house with cellar showing marked brick collection. Named after Macarthur’s wife. 200 acres were granted and used to successfully breed sheep suited to the land,becoming the biggest sheep owner in the colony by the 1800s.

This historic homestead is a reminder of the way early settlers lived in Sydney. The daily routines of life are captured here. A great place for the young to explore and be informed about.
