We visitedthis historic house for Melbournes food and wine festival. Had a tour of the house, which has its original furniture and we learned about the history of the owners. The grounds are beautiful and the festival was great. A must to see when it is open.

As a child I would ride my bike from "the other side of the river" to Como Park and pass Como house. It always seemed"posh" to me, It is part of our heritage and an example of our cities early development
