Vaucluse House is one of Sydney’s few 19th century mansions still surrounded by its original gardens and wooded grounds. When William Charles Wentworth bought the house in 1827, it was a single-storey cottage in a secluded valley of partly cleared coastal scrub. In fits and starts over the next five decades, William and his wife Sarah developed Vaucluse into a large and picturesque estate. In 1915 Vaucluse House became Australia’s first official house museum.
