To celebrate its 75th anniversary, The National Trust (NSW) is hosting a bunch of free open days at its properties across New South Wales. This includes Earth and Sky at Old Government House on Sunday, April 18.

Set within 200 acres of Burramatta Darug land, this stunning heritage-listed building will be bustling with family-friendly fun. When you arrive, you'll see an Aboriginal sand painting being created by First Nations artist Walangari Karntawarra. Next, head inside and upstairs to discover a new science exhibition, Enquiring Minds, coupled with complementary activities to help deepen your scientific learning experience.

Once you've toured the historical house and its collections, head outside for lawn games, which include bowls and a giant Lego set. Then, grab yourself a spot on the picnic rugs to enjoy the music as you usher in the late afternoon with a glass of complimentary wine served at 2pm.

If you get hungry, the on-site restaurant Lachlan's will have you covered with its a la carte menu and high tea, too.

Earth and Sky at Old Government House will run from 10am–4pm on Sunday, April 18. The event is free to attend but booking is essential. To register, head over here.
