Logos Visit

Come to Carisbrook as individual visitors, or as an organised group.

Your visit transports you back to life as you would have lived it one hundred and thirty years ago. The house is furnished as it would have been when the original owners, the Brooks family, moved into their new house. Wander through the rooms and experience the lifestyle of the Brooks—each room embellished with the trivia of daily family life in that era.

The Exhibition Room provides introductory videos telling the story of the Brooks family and the Carisbrook Estate. Here the Lane Cove Historical Society Inc. displays some of the extensive Carisbrook Collection covering the broader history of Lane Cove life.


INDIVIDUAL VISITS:

Tours are available to the public each weekend between 11am and 4pm. 

GROUP TOURS:

Larger group tours need to be booked. Morning or afternoon teas may be organised. Telephone or email for bookings.

Carisbrook House welcomed the lovely Stage 1 students from Mowbray Public School this week. One enthusiastic Year 2 student declared it was the best history lesson ever! Who knew history could be so much fun!

RECENT REVIEWS FROM VISITORS TO CARISBROOK

August 2017 – Silke, Manager of the Australian-German Welfare Society Inc –  “We would like to thank you again for the warm welcoming at Carisbrook House yesterday and for the very informative tour. The history of the house and it’s former owners was very well presented and enjoyable. We had a lovely morning at the property and will most certainly recommend a visit to Carisbrook House to all of our friends. Keep up the good work!”

 

Frank and Penny from Rozelle NSW – “First class tour – Very informative – Excellent”

May 23 2017  – Dear Robyn – Thank you and your colleagues (friendly, hard-working volunteers) for a lovely visit to Carisbrook and for the photos. The Ladybirds thoroughly enjoyed hearing the history of the house and area; a lovely lunch in a beautiful setting and perfect autumn weather. I know many of the Ladybirds will be checking out your website and will be returning for special functions throughout the year. Please also thank Terry for showing me round the garden a few weeks ago. Gardens are my weakness – can never see enough of them! Many thanks. Maureen.    The Ladybirds pictured below
