Carisbrook House


Experience life in the 1880s...

Wander through this house and immerse yourself in rooms that evoke a day in the lives of Charles and Marian Brooks, who built this sandstone house on land owned by the family from the 1850s. Stories of the family and the house echo a time when the North Shore was a world away from the heart of Sydney.

Set in tranquil gardens that go down to the waters of Burns Bay, Carisbrook is Sydney's only house museum to capture the middle-class lifestyle of the Victorian era.

The house at 334 Burns Bay Road is owned by the Lane Cove Council with curatorship under the Lane Cove Historical Society Inc.
