We are able to provide free tours of historic Urrbrae House for groups of SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS (subject to availability) during school terms on:
Please allow at least 75-90 minutes for your visit to Urrbrae House.
Aspects covered in the tours include:
- The life of the Waite family from the 1860s through to 1922
- The physical and cultural heritage of the house
- South Australian social history in the late Victorian/early Edwardian eras.
Tours may be of particular interest for those undertaking subjects such as Society and Environment, History, and Art and Design. However, please feel free to contact us about modifying our standard tour to accommodate the interests of your group.
Tours may, on request, also incorporate the nearby Coach House (the original stables area of the Urrbrae estate) where students can see a recreation of a 1920s scientific laboratory from the Waite Agricultural Research Institute.
Groups of up to 40 students may be taken through the house at one time. All guides have national police certification ("police checks").
