Guided tour of the Graythwaite site

Join a guided walking tour and enjoy exclusive access to view the Graythwaite site that sits within Shore, North Sydney. Discover the story of the site from its beginnings as a stone cottage to a grand 19th century estate incorporating a Coach House, the Stables and a former Rose Garden and Hut.

Opening the Graythwaite site as part of the Australian Heritage Festival presents a wonderful opportunity for visitors to view these historic buildings and grounds. A 40-minute guided tour will be hosted on 11 May. The foundations of the site were laid in 1833 by Thomas Walker and his wife, Julia. Together, they built a cottage and over the years, subsequent owners have commissioned renovations and modifications for various purposes.
