“Interesting Housewith Friendly Guide”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Eskbank House is a significant property in Lithgow. The house has been well maintained and is furnished with period furniture bought by a local philanthropist and now forms "The Bracey Collection". On the day we went a volunteer guide took us around the house and gave a brief tour which was well worth it. The house also has a number of exhibitions, at the time of our visit the major exhibition was on the former PM - Sir Joseph Cook, a local of the Lithgow area.

The house has large gardens, though they are not anything particularly special. There are a number of interesting outbuildings containg a local bottle (beer/soft drinks) collection, an old steam train, a well restored hansom cab and a collection of Lithgow pottery. The property has suffered due to its location next to an industrial area and opposite rail yards and a dog track. Depending on the weather I would say its possible to spend a good hour here.
