About this event

Miss Porter's House - General Entry

Please note this property does not accept Dine & Discover NSW vouchers, please see our list of participating properties.

See the home created by the Australian born children of nineteenth century migrants. Newcastle boy, Herbert Porter, and his wife, Florence, raised a family in Newcastle West. Their freestanding Edwardian home is now a National Trust museum containing a century of household memorabilia, including many items which reflect their interest in the local area and all things Australian.

Florence and her daughters, Ella and Hazel, were excellent craftswomen. Their crochet, embroidery and stencil work included many native motifs, with images of kookaburras, kangaroos and wattle adorn commercial brooches, matchboxes, and tea towels. They also collected news clippings, photographs and postcards illustrating local events and there is a large group of Eureka Stockade film memorabilia.
