My friend recently held her wedding at Barwon Grange and it was such a lovely spot to have a wedding. The gardens are beautiful and the building itself is delightful. I did not go inside at all - I assume you can? But the outside itself is worth a visit. If considering for a wedding, it is well worth considering.

This house is presented as a time capsule, as if owner/builders, Jonathan and Anne Porter O'Brien were living in the home. It is 1856 and the inhabitants have just stepped out while you have a tour of their beautiful villa set alongside the Barwon River. Wonderful attraction and a credit to Geelong.

I thought that this historic home was pleasant enough, but after 45 minutes I'd had enough.
