Centenary Appeal
In 2014 the Eryldene Foundation launched an appeal for funds to secure the future of this important place. With no on-going government funding and in the absence of an adequate capital fund the long term future of Eryldene is uncertain. We invite you to click Support and read about the importance of the appeal and ways you can become a valued donor.

Mothers Day Celebration
"My culture, my story"

Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th May, 2018

Take a tour of the house and learn about Mrs Janet Waterhouse née Kellie, of Eryldene, Kilmarnock, Scotland, as she strove to cope with the Australian climate and embrace the new ways of life at Eryldene, Gordon, Sydney. 

Hear about the ways she managed a busy life of entertaining, theatre, lectures, practised the traditional Japanese art of Ikebana and managed a busy household for her husband and four sons.

Enjoy the traditional Japanese art of Ikebana, arranged throughout the house especially for your visit.

The Garden Cafe will not be open, but Mother’s Day Celebratory Tea will be served both days from 11.00am

Mother’s Day Celebratory Tea – Saturday and Sunday (bookings essential) Invite your mother, grandmother, mother-in law, aunts and friends to enjoy the leisurely pastime of taking tea in the beautiful garden at Eryldene created by Professor Waterhouse between 1914 - 1977. 

Sit down to a table set with embroidered linen and fine china reflecting the teas served by Mrs Waterhouse at her Sundays "At Home" and indulge in our homemade delicacies to celebrate the day.
