Vaucluse House is a heritage-listed historic estate located in the Suburb of Vaucluse, named for the house, in Sydney’s East. The house was built sporadically between 1805 and the early 1860’s by Charles William Wentworth, a statesman whose societal standing was undermined by his illegitimate birth, convict associations and the questionable moral standing of his wife.
Tours of the house detail the history of its owners, the surrounding area and local political climate of the 19th century, and the property itself is hired out as a function centre for high teas, weddings and business events.
