“Majestic, historical gardens and house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Many weddings/receptions held here. The gardens are beautiful and back on to a public park - Como Park, which is beautifully turfed all over and has an oval where cricket matches are played on summer weekends.

“A trip back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

On one of the windows, one of the children who lived in the house when it was a home has scratched a message to her brother into the glass, ask the guide about it, really interesting and amusing! Beautiful house and grounds, just a wonderful slice of history you can view as it was way back when.

“A Melbourne love story”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Beautiful grounds, a lovely little cafe with its own gardens out the back. A great place for a little picnic, and fun for kids with chickens running around!

“stunning property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

A wonderful place to spend a day in. The gardens are immaculate. The house offers lovely views. Great food.

Over the years, I've visited this place at least 5 times, and each time I'm in awe. I've even attended a wedding there, and it was so romantic and lovely.

PLEASE NOTE that currently, they only allow group bookings as they're undergoing renovations! It's best to phone ahead on 98272500

House tour was fascinating and the grounds are beautiful to relax in with a picnic or a coffee and cake from the cafe!
