I visited with my Sydney Living Museums pass, which is excellent value and complements the other museums perfectly. Visiting each of the museums kept me pleasantly occupied for over a week. Elizabeth Farm is a historical homestead in Rose Hill (Parramatta) built by John Macarthur and his wife Elizabeth in 1793. It is one of the oldest houses in Australia... More

Elizabeth Farm is managed by Sydney Living Museums which encourages children to immerse themselves in the experience of this historic homestead. It is not only beautiful but has a wonderful sense of history and my kids particularly loved being able to try on hats, scrub the washing, ring the bells and play the children's games. The cafe is also great... More

The people were fantastic. Since I was the only one there when I arrived they were able to get me a guide despite it not being the scheduled guided tour time. The house has been set out simply so you can see how each of the rooms were used and it's nice that's you can touch the furniture.

We go there regularly because we live close. I think the council could do more to preserve the area around the site. Ultimately it is a beautiful site and they have great scones and coffee

This was a great look into the history of Aussie pioneers. It was surprising to find it slap bang in the middle of a residential area. The gardens were lovely and the café good with great service. On the downside there were places the public could not access (like upstairs in the house). There was a lack of signage to... More

arrived late in afternoon. had delicious sandwiches and the best scones I've ever eaten. a quick look around. it was really good to be allowed thru the rooms sto look closely at the furniture etc. some places rope off the rooms and you can only look from afar. although its small its well worth a visit

In Rose Hill - and to my surprise - no dedicated parking. I took my grandsons in the June holidays and while the six year old was disappointed that there were no animals on the 'farm', the guide more than made up for this with their child friendly tour. Joshua enjoyed playing the upright piano - I now know what... More

What a lovely place! The farm has a lovely homely feel found infrequently in heritage buildings. The storyboards scattered around the house make it all the more interesting. One of the things you simply must try while there is the Devonshire Teas. The scones are huge, light fluffy and delicious. I couldn't get over the amount of jam and cream... More

Our excellent guide, a very personable young man, told us we could sit on the furniture or even play the piano. It brought this 200 hundred year old home alive. We would not have been surprised if the first owners had walked into the room. The garden too was also impressive.

Loved stepping back in time and history as ancestors visited here in 1800 s prior to working for John MacArthur at Richlands and purchasing their own land. It was a great opportunity to connect with history. Slices for morning tea and coffee in cafe were also a treat.
