Vaucluse House

Original cottage built by Irish convict Henry Browne Hayes in 1805 and greatly expanded by William Charles Wentworth after he purchased the estate in 1827. It became a large Gothic-style residence surrounded by a nineteenth-century garden and outhouses, and is now a house museum run by the Historic Houses Trust.
