Beautiful house and outbuildings. Original building dates from 1842. Strong associations with the Lithgow iron industry. Much is owed to Eric Bracey who had the forsight to preserve a slice of Australian history in 1948.

This place is full of history and charm. My favourite was the blacksmith corner outside with all the carriages. Lots of photo ops and handling of historic objects. You can organise a tour or just wander at your own leisure. Nice place to stop for...More

We found Esbank House and Museum really interesting. We enjoyed seeing the original furniture of that era set up in the rooms, including wallpaper / flooring etc. A loving restoration for the Town. Our 10 & 12 year old had fun in the buildings with...More

A little piece of 1960s interpretation of our colonial past. Built in simple Georgian style using local sandstone it has a typical large surrounding porch under a corrugated iron roof. Established as a house museum in the 60s it is a dated but fascinating interpretation...More

This is not a large place, but we spent about an hour here, learning about the original owners and gaining an insight into local history. Sadly none of the contents of the house are original, but efforts have been made to give a good representation...More
