Enjoy history, harbour views and shopping
Lindesay National Trust NSW
Now in its 18th year, the Lindesay Christmas Gift Fair is run by the NSW National Trust Women's Committee. Lindesay, was built in 1834 so this is your chance to step back into the gracious life of early Sydney.
The house features Georgian interiors and an elegant garden with uninterrupted Harbour views. Below stairs, the stone kitchen, servants' quarters and freshwater well are reminders of a very different life than we have today.
You will find over 80 stalls where you can shop for distinctive Christmas gifts including homewares, jewellery, shoes, linen, antiques, stationery, bags, clothes and accessories for adults and children.
The gourmet food cellar and The Courtyard Cafe offer delicious treats in this lovely venue.
Lunch and morning tea is usually served in the courtyard or under the enormous old Plane Trees.
This event is running from 14 November 2019 until 16 November 2019.
Upcoming Dates: 14 Nov 2019 10:00 am — 4:00 pm 15 Nov 2019 10:00 am — 4:00 pm
