My friend Caroline and I often meet up for random adventures around Sydney. This time, we decided to head to 7 Onslow Avenue for a tour around the historic Elizabeth Bay House. For just $8 (AUD), we got a first-hand peek into the former life of Alexander Macleay and his exquisite family home which featured beautiful views overlooking the harbour and even included a library and wine cellars. My favourite was the Drawing Room, located on the first floor which they say served as a “reception room to which guests retired after dinner.” If only one could afford to live so luxuriously–the room was the size of my entire flat! Anyway, it was a lovely visit and I was happy to learn a bit of the history behind this grand estate.
