This is a little haven in bustling Melbourne. The house is beautiful, so impressive and reminiscent of days gone by. And the grounds are spectacular. Beautiful and relaxing. A great place for a picnic on a fine day to soak up the sun and the greenery. A simply lovely spot.

We visisted Como House during the French Festival last November. The Festival was fantastic - well worth attending the festival and taking in the beautiful house and gardens. We had lunch in The Stables - food was very good and service was also very good given how busy they were.

A beautiful house from the early days of Melbourne that has been updated through the late 1800s. Now looked after by the National Trust. Grounds are small but well done and free all the time. The house is open every other weekend. Tour was ok, could have been more in depth. However you have to be on a tour to... More

I've lived in Melbourne for 40 odd years and thought I'd take a look. It is terribly unprofessionally managed. You can not tell where to enter. No signs anywhere. The stables cafe toilets are a joke. Very old and dirty. Walked past kitchen from the back and oh the smell was terrible just like sewage. The chef looked uninterested and... More

This place is only open four times a month. The grounds are well maintained and the water feature was pleasant. The vegetable patch was in need of tendering and the chickens were happily receiving grass from the children. The Stables cafe was doing a good trade and people were waiting to get in there. The old house is nice from... More

This is a stunning home which really dererves a bit more polish to display it in all its former glory. The grounds are tranquil but one does suspect the trees have been allowed to grow as they would never have done before. The view over the river, which from the house, would have been magnificent, is now completely blocked except... More

Unless you're in Melbourne on one of two Sat/Sun a month. you won't get to see inside this house. Shame when properties are said to be for the benefit of the public. Unless you can get 10 people in a group, that is the only way to see it during the week.

This historic beauty blew me away. I wondered through the Como Historic House and Garden during Open Melbourne celebrations in 2014. The rooms are well presented and prepared. The food at the cafe was amazing and very popular! I was surprised to find a house of this age still in such neat precision.

Take the number 8 tram from the cbd and get off at william street (it's at the top of the hill). It takes about 20 minutes in the tram to get there. Como Historic House is lovely, great grounds, and the house has many old antiques inside. Lovely place to go.

This place has a sense of history about it that is tastefully preserved. There are also the beautiful gardens worth relaxing in or treating your camera's lens to. You can either bring a picnic or enjoy some good food and coffee that the Stables Of Como has available for you. Give this a visit as part of your walk, cycle... More
