I’ve spoken about my love for Sydney’s heritage before. From the architecture in the Rocks to the haunting photographic archive at the Justice and Police Museum, there are so many ways the past comes alive. Top of my list, though, are historic houses. I had such happy memories from exploring Susanna Place, Governors House and Elizabeth Farm that when I read about the lovely Vaucluse House, I knew I had to venture out into the suburbs to check it out!
Sydney has some superb museums that beautifully capture the city’s colourful and storied past. Loving history as much as I do, I found myself wanting to devote a bit more time to them than my overview of things to do in Sydney warranted. So I’m taking the opportunity to do them justice here instead.
Here’s a closer look inside some of my top museums in Sydney…
In late May we were incredibly lucky to get the opportunity to visit some of my family over in Sydney. I’m not actually much of a city person by nature, but I adored Sydney. It’s so rich in things to do and see, including two of my favourite things: history and culture.
Even though I originally wrote this as a top 10, I couldn’t resist adding a few more favourites to the list! If you’re planning a longer visit to Sydney, be sure to check out my bonus recommendations from 11-15.
