Nestled deep in the heart of Castlereagh, part of the picturesque Macquarie Five Towns, Vine Cottage is part of the beautiful Munbilla Victorian property that was laboriously constructed over the past three decades by the Museum’s curator, Bob Dennis. Originally an orchard farm at the turn of the 20th Century, the five-acre property has been developed into a wonderful homestead built with authentic convict brick and stone.

The Tea Room serves fresh High Tea, all prepared made on site with comfortable seating both inside the museum as well as outside in the beautifully groomed garden that provide spectacular views of the Blue Mountains. The museum is comfortably air-conditioned at all times and is disabled friendly with full access and amenities. Vine Cottage Tool Museum and Tea Room is located less than 10 minutes north of Penrith and 15 minutes south of Richmond.
