Yaralla Estate Open Day

That Sydney has a rare intact example of a large Edwardian private residential estate surprises many. The Yaralla Estate was developed by the Walker family between 1848 and 1937 as a farm, pleasure garden, residence and one of Sydney’s premiere social destinations. You can see it on our Open Day.

For the Open Day we arrange with the Estates’ custodian (NSW Health) for parking near the inner gates and access to the extensive grounds and gardens (37 ha) between 9:30am and 3:00pm.

You also can enter the Dairy, Squash Court and the Stable buildings*, see our photo displays of the Estate and its personalities, purchase books about the Estate and the Walkers and enjoy an excellent Devonshire Tea of homemade scones served in the Dairy.

Our knowledgeable guides lead tours of the grounds and buildings every half hour starting at 10am. As you tour the site you’ll hear of its history, and fascinating stories of the people who lived, worked and visited it.

Tours start from the Dairy and take about 75 minutes. We suggest that you wear a hat and comfortable shoes as the tour route is about 1.5km, some of which is over uneven ground. Last tour 1:30pm.

Picnicking and photography encouraged. On the Register of the National Estate.

*Not the mansion, it is used as a residential health facility.
