“Barwon Grange - wonderful time capsule of life in 1950s Geelong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

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.

“While away 45 minutes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2009

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