Welcome to Chifley Home & Education Centre...

Discover the life of one of Australia's great Prime Ministers and the challenges of the 1940's in a World War II house museum.

Chifley Home at 10 Busby Street in Bathurst was the only marital home of Prime Minister Ben Chifley and his wife, Elizabeth. Today, this modest semi-detached terrace still contains its original collection of household furnishings and personal effects dating back to when the Chifleys first occupied the house in 1914.

Chifley Home will be closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Guided tours resume Saturday 2 January 2016 with tours at 10.00am and 12noon.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!
