History of Riversdale
An estate with a rich history that is full of inns and schools, set in beautiful grounds. Edward Twynam, the New South Wales Surveyor-General bought it in 1875 and it remained the family home until 1967. Sketches and furniture crafted by Emily Twynam still decorate the home.
Built in the late 1830s as a coaching inn, Riversdale later became home to the district surveyor, Edward Twynam and his family. Edward was appointed Chief Surveyor of NSW during the 1890s and his family occupied Riversdale for almost 100 years prior to its purchase by the National Trust.
Standing within its original paddocks and outbuildings, Riversdale is a fine example of a Colonial Georgian home surrounded by splendid gardens and picnic grounds. Riversdale is renowned for its collection of fine Australian Colonial furniture and arts and craft.
