A delightful heritage house museum, this Victorian-era bungalow was left to the National Trust in 1976 and the collection held features pieces that once belonged to some of the original settlers of the district.
Built in 1845 by Reverend Thomas Sharpe, the house and its contents were left to the National Trust by the last resident, Miss Ida Traill in 1976. The house museum contains a wide and varied collection of furniture, ceramics, horse racing memorabilia and art, much of it bequeathed to Miss Traill by her antecedents, some of whom were the original settlers of the Bathurst district.
Take a delightful stroll through the heritage garden and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. The garden also makes an ideal venue for weddings, luncheons and other functions.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
Destination NSW acknowledges and respects Aboriginal people as the state’s first people and nations and recognises Aboriginal people as the Traditional Owners and occupants of New South Wales land and water.
