Visit Experiment Farm Cottage 

Experiment Farm Cottage stands as an emblem for self-sufficiency where the story of James Ruse’s transformation from convict to pioneering man of the land, is the stuff of Australian legend.

The historic homestead was built by surgeon Dr John Harris, who purchased the land from Ruse in 1793. It's one of Australia's oldest standing properties and is really worth a look as it stands like a time capsule to early colonial life in Australia.

Experiment Farm Cottage is part of a historic precinct that includes Hambledon Cottage (1824), Elizabeth Farm (1793) and the Queen's Wharf, which are all within walking distance of each other.
