Stepping back into history and a game of crocquet

A lot of history surrounding the house and gardens. The property itself its very unique but the highlight has to be the gardens. Worth getting a coffee from the stables cafe and then going for a stroll. Something different in a very bustling area. Tours are available and the National Trust have done a great job preserving the 1800s era... More

We had the pleasure of visiting Como last weekend, to celebrate one of our family members 21st birthday. It was held in "The Stables" at Como. Food, drinks? Excellent. Venue in a garden setting that was once the old stables .Excellent. Staff? Well, you could not ask for better. Young, vibrant beautifully presented with great personalities and excellent service.

This is an old big house .Nothing special. Not a tourist attraction. The house shows how the rich lived those days .You can give it a miss.

When the truly rich built houses to match their wealth, they built mansions like Como. Como has a view over the river flats to the Yarra River. The rich lived grandly. The notion that the young women should do housework was abhorrent. Today Como is a favourite place for weddings. Every girl should be a princess for a day. Visitors... More

I had visited this grand mansion as a child and I believe it was being cared for by the National Trust at the time (back in the 60's). The home and the garden were in a beautiful condition back then. Sadly, this doesn't seem the case today and it is such a shame to see the demise of this once... More

See how the rich lived in the early days of colonisation. Big lovely garden freely open to anyone and a very busy little café which looks great for breakfast/lunch. We did the house tour for a very modest fee and had a really informative guided tour which lasted for about 90minutes. It's surprisingly quite a large house. Amazing history of... More

We went in the week so only had access to the gardens which were very nice but not as big as we'd imagined. It's free to go in to the gardens and we spent some time just sitting with our books enjoying the sunshine so it was worth the tram ride from the centre of Melbourne. It's not far from... More

Really disappointed, drove for over an hour to visit this property as it was recommended to us, had a confirmed booking with the ticket confirmation by email. Arrived at the property met by a very pleasant young lady who told us there was no guide available and the booking should never have been accepted. sorry, we are closed (in the... More
