Glenalvon has been described as ‘An exceptional two-storied sandstone home of colonial Georgian design’ by the National Trust, and ‘A rare example of a residence and garden of its period, size, diversity, integrity, and quality’ (Otto Cserhalmi & Partners, Heritage Architects). Glenalvon is circa 1841 and consists of the two storey main house, the earlier Servants Quarters, and a Victorian Coach House & Stables. A custom built slab shed was constructed in 1995 to protect the Society’s collection of historical agricultural equipment and what is probably Australia’s most important gravestone – that of pioneer farmer, James Ruse. Historic Glenalvon is not only beautiful, it is classic in its architecture and construction.
We travel north stopping for morning tea from the coach. We continue onto Campbelltown where we visit Glenalvon. On arrival we enjoy a light lunch followed by a guided tour of this historic home. After our tour we collect our local guide who takes us on a tour of some of the local historic sites on board our coach. Mid afternoon we depart Campbelltown, with drop offs to commence at approx. 6:00pm.Booking Request Download Brochure Terms & Conditions
