The Waterhouses of Eryldene in Gordon lived full and interesting lives. Tour the house and discover how the various family members approached the adventure of life. Hear the stories – personal, domestic, cultural and political from their height of productivity, through retirement, illness, and all the cycles of life.
Visit Eryldene and enjoy the exhibition of beautiful smocked dresses for babies and children and also for stillborns and premature babies, made by The Smocking Arts Guild of NSW. Their aim is to preserve and foster the art of smocking and related needlework through education, communication and quality workmanship.
Sit and enjoy the tranquillity of the garden rooms and the collection of camellias and azaleas, now at the height of their flowering season.
