Elizabeth Farm

Built in 1793, Elizabeth Farm contains part of the oldest surviving European building in Australia.Once home to Elizabeth and John Macarthur, pioneers of the Australian wool industry, the house was also the prototype for the colonial homestead. It is one of the most accessible house museums you will ever visit. There are no inhibiting room barriers so you can sit on the chairs, read family letters imagining life in early colonial times. Tours available include a garden tactile - sensory tour and a self-guided touch tour of the garden. There is wheelchair access to all areas except the kitchen which can be viewed from the doorway.
