Members Tour: Wentworth Mausoleum
Join us for a members-only walking tour to the rarely opened Wentworth Mausoleum and learn about William Charles Wentworth’s extravagant 1873 state funeral.
Your tour will start in the grand drawing room at Vaucluse House and journey a short distance to the rarely opened Wentworth Mausoleum – the final resting place of William Charles Wentworth. Hear stories and listen to commentary from colonial newspapers about the details of this great event.
William Charles Wentworth was a talented and outspoken lawyer and politician. Although himself once described as ‘a man of immoral life and lowest origins’, he was part of a new generation of Australian-born colonists determined to break down the social and civil barriers that divided free settlers from the ‘convict-stained’. He campaigned strongly and relentlessly for civil rights, particularly representative government and the right to trial by jury.
