Flanked by suburbia and encroaching high-rise developments, this is a little gem. The site was originally occupied by former convict farmer, James Ruse who acquired the colony's first land grant in 1791. Two years later he sold the site to the Colonial Surgeon, John Harris. The existing cottage was built by Harris in the 1830s and ultimately became one of the first properties acquired by the National Trust. Its interior is also significant, being based upon an 1838 inventory and includes major examples of early colonial furniture. Do check admission costs online.
