Join our conservation teams at beautiful Sydney Harbour National Park to undertake valuable works to restore and enhance the formal gardens of the heritage listed Greycliffe House. The gardens rub shoulders with the restored Greycliffe House. This historic sandstone mansion, built in 1852, is one of the best-preserved examples of neo-gothic Victorian architecture in Sydney. Come along for the day to contribute to restoring the gardens through conserving significant plantings and strengthening the theme of the 19th century
