Such a beautiful place to go for a leisurely stroll on the weekend. Take the Storybook Lane walk with the children to find hidden spiders, trolls, wonderful sculptures and maybe even a Hobbit House! Then wander past olive trees, arbors and roses. Entry to the gardens is free, so enjoy a picnic lunch or indulge at the cafe. The outside... More

I managed to make it at the end of the day, just before the House closed for the season. It is amazing, and the interior is gorgeous. It would have been good to get some more information about the place explaining different things that were up, and the history of the couple that lived there. As with all historic houses,... More

The setting of this magnificent house was totally awesome. Beautiful grounds and so peaceful. They are trying to return the grounds to how they were originally which is great. The rose gardens are amazing and would have been good to see all in flower. The house and history was amazing. A self guided tour is probably better but was really... More

Just love going to this amazing property at Mitchum - I feel like I could be anywhere in Europe. The property was bequeathed to the state govt by the Hayward family who were very much into the arts and have left a huge legacy for us to enjoy. Wonderful sculptures scattered around the gardens. I just love the pear arbor,... More

Great place to take tea (or something stronger) on the terrace with glorious views. Staff are friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking and walks to take and don't miss a tour of the house

I love this house and garden. It is well worth having a guide for your first visit as the history of this house is fascinating. From the staircase and panelling to the amazing artists and the incredible family that bought them together. The gardens are superb and integrating the fairy-tale and classic stories into it draws you through the entire... More
