Elizabeth Bay House used to be 'the finest house in the colony'. Blessed with a 54-acre garden and the best in Aussie colonial architecture, the Elizabeth Bay House still stands, as glorious as ever. Inside you'll find an 1839-1845 style refurnishing that depicts the life of the Macleay’s and gives you a clear picture of life in Sydney in the early 19th century.
