Vaucluse House is a heritage-listed former Aboriginal land, residence, colonial farm and country estate and now tourist attraction, house museum and public park. It is a 19th-century estate with house, kitchen wing, stables and outbuildings, surrounded by 10 hectares (28 acres) of formal gardens and grounds. The house is one of the few 19th-century houses near Sydney Harbour retaining a significant part of its original setting. Built in 1803, Vaucluse House was once owned by William Charles Wentworth, father of the Australian Constitution, and his family. The interiors include original Wentworth pieces together with furniture, furnishings and collections of the early to mid-nineteenth century.
