Things to do


In 1911, the N.S.W. Government resumed the Bottle and Glass/Nielsen Park portion of what remained of the Vaucluse (Wentworth) Estate for public recreation - the area was administered for many years by the Nielsen - Vaucluse House Trust. The Park was named after the Hon. N.R.W. Nielsen, the Secretary (Minister) for Lands (1910-11).
