One hundred years ago in April 1914, Mr & Mrs Waterhouse and their first son Gordon moved into their newly completed house at Eryldene, and from that point on began a lifetime of creativity and scholarship; which culminated in the work of art we know as Eryldene today.

It is an early 20th century historic house and garden and is recognised as one of the nation's most important heritage properties.

The garden is regarded as the spiritual home of the camellia in Australia. Professor Waterhouse planted, researched and propagated camellias earning him international recognition and bringing the camellia back to popularity in Australia.

Professor Waterhouse was also influential in the world of art, design, architecture and linguistics and during his life Eryldene become a lively centre for discussion and influence.

Eryldene is celebrating a hundred years of the occupation of the house as a family home. The special "house warming weekend" is free for all, so do be sure to attend this special occasion.

There is a garden cafe as well to grab a treat or two. High Tea will be available on the Sunday from 2pm bookings are essential so do check the website for more information.
