In 1825 James Tobias Ryan, a Penrith local, built Emu Hall for his wife and seven children. Ryan was a well-known sports enthusiast (particularly in boxing and pigeon shooting) and held many different jobs as an auctioneer, ploughman and butcher before being elected to the State Legislative Assembly and settling into Australian politics.

Emu Hall was originally surrounded by 1.04 hectares of estate with freestanding servant’s quarters, brick stables, a workshop, formal gardens and a wine cellar. Learn more.
