Looking at Architecture: Waverley/Bronte Day

In early days the Waverley and Bronte areas were described as swampland. Even though roads to South Head and Coogee were built in the 1830's it wasn't until the 1850's that houses began to appear.

The first building was Bronte House, one of the houses open today. (See feature article – National Trust Magazine August – October 2016.) In 2014, to the credit of Waverley Council, extensive re-restoration work was carried out and a Conservation Management Plan is in place for future care of this significant Regency villa – a gentleman’s house. The other two houses open today include 5 Prospect Street, Waverley, a fine Victorian stone house.

Tours run 10.30am to 12.30pm and 1pm to 3pm
