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

Although I haven't been to the house the cafe is worth an independent visit. Sat outside for breakfast on a sunny day was perfect. Friendly staff and good food (and coffee). Would highly recommend as a brunch spot.

It is a beautiful and elegant home and was both known for its entertainment and as a family home for the Armytage Family a wealthy Victorian pastoral family. Many of the furnishings and possessions of the Armytage Family remain in the house today. It is set in beautiful grounds and... More

Como House was built 12 years after Victoria was first settled. It's had three owners and the last owners the Armytage family owned the property for more than eighty years before selling it at half its price to the National Trust of Victoria. The wonderful gesture of the Armytage sisters was to also donate their furniture. This has enabled theTrust... More

I used to live near Como House and had no difficulty taking visitors there as the house was often open for inspection. It's an attractive house in lovely grounds, and it's not hard to imagine a family living there and using the grounds running all the way down to the Yarra River. (In fact the grounds are now abbreviated and... More
