Information

Strickland House in Sydney Harbour National Park has been many things in its long life. Designed in the Victorian Italianate style by architect John Hilly (who designed St Patrick’s Catholic Church), in the 19th century it was home to leading figures of Sydney's establishment. In the 20th century it was a women’s convalescent home and later an aged care facility. Now, its grounds and gardens welcome bushwalkers, history buffs, locals, beachgoers, boaties and photographers. Watching the sun set over Sydney Harbour from its lawn is an unforgettable experience.Spend the day picnicking on the lawn and take a dip at Milk Beach. You'll be close to Nielsen Park and Vaucluse House, and it’s only a short walk to Rose Bay.Enter the beautiful gardens of Strickland House from the Hermitage Foreshore track. You can also access the lawn from tiny Milk Beach, which the house overlooks. Give yourself time to admire the architecture of the heritage-listed mansion, dormitory and stables. The garden combines English tradition with native plants, like the majestic Moreton Bay fig trees. It's amazingly peaceful, even though the house is minutes from busy suburban roads.You won’t forget the breathtaking harbour view, clear sea air and secluded elegance of Strickland House. A visit here will leave you feeling restored, fit and ready to face the 21st century again.
