Rouse Hill House and Farm is one of the earliest surviving properties in Australia and an extraordinary archive of the lives of the Rouse and Terry families. Take a guided tour of the estate’s house, its grounds and outbuildings and discover the rich collection of objects from over 180 years of one family’s occupation.

It is also one of Australia's most significant historic properties, outstanding for its unique array of artifacts, furnishings, buildings and original colonial garden. It also provides the most complete document of continuous family occupancy of a country house in New South Wales.

I am proud to live in such a historic area, with our home just less than five minutes' drive to this farm!

Families can experience life in the farm during weekends when they offer brekky and activities at the farm like milking cows, gathering eggs, etc.Plus they serve a hearty Aussie brekky for a small fee! Go and visit the place, you will love it!
