Truly one of the grand houses of Melbourne, a tour brings its history to life. As advised by other reviewers pre-book your tour as they often book out on weekends. The gardens are a delight with wonderful views of the house, perfect for a picnic....More

It was a great way to enjoy 2-3 hours. Cafe in the stables and a great garden to stroll around the tour was highly informative and was just long enough. I would recommend this to anyone interested in Melbourne or colonial history.
