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.

TALK & TEA - Dancing for the Marquis

Tuesday, 3 September 2019 10.00am- 12.00Dancing for the Marquis coverpm

Historian and writer, Dr Edith Ziegler will be speaking about her new book, Dancing for the Marquis. 

This is a fictionalised version of the improbable but true story of an infamous 19th century immigration and financial scandal perpetrated by the Marquis de Rays, a narcissistic and deluded French nobleman

The talk will be richly illustrated to enable you to follow in the footsteps of the intending settlers on their strange and heartbreaking journey. Their experience is part of Australia’s rich immigration narrative, also the story of our stoical rural pioneers.

One of Eryldene’s delicious morning teas will be served prior to the talk.

Book early as numbers are limited. Bookings essential. Please see our Calendar page for full details.

Saturday 14 & Sunday 15 September 2019 10.00am - 4.00pm

Memories from grandfather Vickery's garden in Waverley, from Colonial cottage gardens and from gardens visited during a European sabbatical in 1906 - 1908 all inspired Professor Waterhouse's design for his garden at Eryldene. Tease out the subtleties of the landscape as you stroll through the tranquilly of his garden 'rooms'. Admire his very personal collection of camellias and azaleas, now at the height of their flowering season. 

Book a granny-chic Sunday Afternoon Tea, inspired by those served by Mrs Waterhouse.

The Garden Cafe will be open for light refreshments.

Eryldene Sunday Afternoon Teas - two sittings 1.00 pm & 2.30pm. Tea bookings essential.
