S&A Law team learn the fascinating story of Vaucluse House at our annual picnic

Our team and their families enjoyed a trip to Vaucluse House last week for our annual picnic. Vaucluse House is one of Sydney’s few 19th-century mansions still surrounded by its original gardens and wooded grounds.

When the towering colonial explorer, barrister and politician William Charles Wentworth bought the house in 1827, it was a single-storey cottage in a secluded valley of partly cleared coastal scrub. In fits and starts over the next five decades, William and his wife Sarah developed Vaucluse into a large and picturesque estate.

What an amazing day we had enjoying the company of one another and learning about the history of Sydney’s now 100 year old museum.
