Nightlight at Elizabeth Farm : Share your story

Bring your family to a twilight event to experience Australia’s oldest house in a whole new light.

As night falls at Elizabeth Farm the lamps are lit, the table is set, and the servants are busy preparing the Macarthurs’ evening meal and night-time activities by the fire. You will be invited to be play card games, speak with the servants in the kitchen and be a guest in the house, exploring the night garden and discover the house by candlelight, seeing the house prepared for the evening as it would have been in colonial times.

Bring along a short 5 minute story and take your place on the story-tellers seat to share your history.

A light supper of soup, damper and other savoury and sweet treats will make the evening one to share and enjoy.
