The Friends of Linnwood

The Friends hold regular Open Days to raise money for continued restoration and conservation work on the house. The Friends are all volunteers, working together to promote Linnwood throughout the local and wider community.

Current advice from the NSW Health Department is that masks are no longer necessary in some indoor settings, however if visitors feel more comfortable wearing a mask, please do so.
We continue to be optimistic about holding events at Linnwood during 2022, and are going ahead with booking exhibitors for our Open Days and guest speakers for our Public Meetings this year.
We will also be taking bookings for Group Tours, so if you have a group of friends (minimum 15 people), or belong to a community group who would like to visit in 2022, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you back at Linnwood.
Linnwood has a new look!
