History lovers will be able to catch a glimpse of everyday life in a bygone era when the beautiful Glenalvon House in the historic Macarthur region opens its doors to the public for free entry on the second and fourth Saturday of the month (February to November). As well as at the Handmade and Homegrown markets in Campbelltown on the third Sunday of the month.
Glenalvon House was built in 1841 and is described by the National Trust as 'an exceptional two-storied sandstone home of colonial Georgian design'.
The furnished two storeys colonial house provides a glimpse into Campbelltown's days early in the 19th century.
Twelve rooms are open to the public, including the drawing-room, the library, the nursery, and the children's bedroom. An agricultural exhibition featuring the actual tools from colonial times is also located on the site.
Glenalvon also features a period garden, a sandstone coach house and heritage stables. The property is home to the Campbelltown and Airds Historical Society.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
Destination NSW acknowledges and respects Aboriginal people as the state’s first people and nations and recognises Aboriginal people as the Traditional Owners and occupants of New South Wales land and water.
