“Old English Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

This estate is huge and a perfect spot for a picnic in front of the old English Mansion. It is surrounded by lush garden filled with giant trees, ferns, lots of shades, pond & lake & a mini waterfall. It is sooo well maintained & gives you a wee taste of the old world charm, very family & child friendly environment & also a perfect place for a dream wedding!

“Grand house with beautiful gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We went there a few years ago. The staff gave us a very detailed history about the original owner of the house and how the house was built and used. The garden is really beautiful and interesting. National Trust is doing a wonderful job to keep these histories of Melbourne alive.
