Standing on the crest of a high ridge overlooking Botany Bay, Lydham Hall is one of the oldest homes in the St George area. Built in the early 1860s for master butcher Joseph Davis and his family, it later became the childhood home of Australian author Christina Stead who wrote the acclaimed novel, ‘The Man Who Loved Children’.

Rockdale City Council purchased Lydham Hall in 1970, to celebrate their Centenary and St George Historical Society members have been volunteer guides at the site ever since.

Lydham Hall has one of Sydney’s finest collections of antique furniture, most of which is on loan from the National Trust, as well as a unique collection of Willow Pattern China.

Open Days:
When: Sundays 15, 22 & 29 April, 2pm – 4pm
Where: 18 Lydham Ave, Rockdale
Cost: Adults $4, Concession $3, Children $2.
