Jenkins Kitchen

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Jenkins Kitchen offers a fascinating glimpse into colonial history. It was built in 1856 by Thomas and Maria Jenkins, who owned a great deal of property along Lane Cove River. Today the kitchen is all that remains after a 1942 fire burned Jenkins farmhouse.

Step inside to discover what a mid-19th century kitchen looks like. A fine example of sandstone architecture, the kitchen has a stone fireplace and antique lamps and furniture. Check out the video displays and learn about the plants and animals that call Lane Cove National Park home.

There are plenty of activities nearby to keep the family busy, happy and fed. Enjoy a tasty meal at Lane Cove National Park Caf while the kids play in the covered playground. Or bring snacks for a riverside picnic at Jenkins Hill picnic area and watch kookaburras, lorikeets and butcher birds go about their business.
