The Elizabeth Bay House is controlled and operated as a museum by the Historic House Trust. Constructed from 1835 to 1839 and surrounded by a 54-acre garden, the house reflects the colonial architecture of Australia.
The house belonged to Alexander Macleay, the then colonial secretary. The growing financial distress and the severe economic depression of the 1840s left the house unfinished. Elizabeth Bay House has been remodelled with interiors reflecting Macleays lifestyle and offering a picture of early 19th century Sydney life. The grotto with accompanying stonewalls, steps and trees, are remnants of the original extensive garden.
