‘What We Know About Mary’ Tour

After viewing the Travels with Mary exhibition at Saumarez Homestead, join a tour of the White family house led by an expert volunteer who has made a study of Mary White’s life.

The ‘What we know about Mary’ tour will delve into Mary White’s interests, works and deeds through various works and objects, especially in her room and her own cottage garden in the grounds of Saumarez Homestead, to get an insider’s look into Mary’s life at home.

A private person with a social conscience who gave herself to public works, possessing a strong sense of responsibility and social duty, Mary White was an extraordinary woman of her time.
