About this event

Experiment Farm Cottage - General Entry

Explore the fully restored house built by Surgeon John Harris, now filled with an amazing collection of Australian colonial furniture.

Experiment Farm Cottage is on the site of the first land grant, where James Ruse proved self-sufficiency was possible. He was followed by Surgeon John Harris, who built the Indian-style bungalow in 1835.

John Harris purchased the land from Ruse in 1793 for £40, and is one of Australia’s oldest standing properties! Today it is furnished to provide an authentic insight into that time.

Tickets valid for entry between 10:30am - 3:30pm for the date purchased.
