Vaucluse House

Vaucluse House2 Vaucluse House is one of Sydney’s few 19th-century mansions still surrounded by its original gardens and wooded grounds. Colonial emancipist William Charles Wentworth bought the house in 1827, and over the next 5 decades, William and his wife Sarah developed Vaucluse into a large and picturesque estate. The grounds were extended and flourished to cover most of the present-day suburb of Vaucluse. In 1915 Vaucluse House became Australia’s first official house museum and continues to entice visitors to its lush and still secluded grounds. In 2015, Vaucluse House celebrated 100 years of being a museum.

Life in the Times of the Coronavirus!

This is what the shelves of the meat aisle look like at our local supermarket, while the butcher shop across from the supermarket has full shelves of meat? So many essential items sold out with the panic buying that is happening now, we really need to just.calm.down, take a chill pill, stay at home and out of the supermarkets.

Mandela Tea

I wonder if this tea was produced by the Mandela family or if they had just lent their name to the brand? Have you tried the tea, let us know what you think?
