Yaralla Estate Open Day October 2018 – 12:00pm
October 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree – $15
The Yaralla Estate is significant in the evolving pattern of occupation of the colony, starting with a grant to an ex-convict, then developing as a working farm, continuing as a Victorian estate, early twentieth century Edwardian estate, and mid twentieth century to current times as an institution facility.
It is historically significant as one of the last large nineteenth century estates remaining in metropolitan Sydney. It is of rare State significance because it incorporates an entire 1790s land grant within its boundaries.
We no longer have access to the main building as it is used full time by Sydney Local Health District. However, we can take you on tours of the grounds and some of the outbuildings.
We have a large collection of photographs, many showing the interior of the home in Dame Eadith’s time. These are on display in the Squash Court and the Stables complex.
There are limited toilet facilities.
MANSION: The building is now in full-time use as a health facility, which means that
at times we may not have access to the building. However, on this occasion we will
be able to see several of the rooms on the ground floor.
At this time we don’t have details as to any restrictions regarding time, etc. but we
will contact you prior to the day to let you know what arrangements are in place for
this part of the tour.
