“Rouse Hill Estate is intriguing, it’s such an interesting piece of our history – I imagined the lives of the generations that lived there."
Rouse Hill Estate walk is a short stroll that takes you near the grounds of the old Rouse Hill House and Farm.
The house was built between 1813 and 1818, and several generations descended from civil servant and grazier Richard Rouse, lived here until the 1980's; it’s now maintained by the Historic Houses Trust.
Get the kids to take a break from the adventure playground for a wander into history. It’s an easy walk, so it shouldn’t take too long. If you have time, take a guided tour to explore the time-warped rooms of the house, the ancient garden, stables, outbuildings and historic machinery.
