I went with my family, husband,Father, daughter and granddaughters and was very disappointed with the visit. My daughter went on the Estate website to find the price which stated $20 per person $7 per concession. Tours of the house where an extra $5 per person and the tours were optional no time did it say the tours had to be booked.
When we arrived we were unable to go through the mansion as the tours were finished for the day and we could only go through the gardens. We were however able to see the ballroom as there was a market on there. We were also able to see the kitchen, laundry and stables.
The condition of the outside of the building was very poor and in need of paint and new fly wire, glass in some windows.
As this building was built in the 1880’s and is being cared for by the National Trust of Victoria I was disgusted with they way it looked.
I think the price to see the gardens was to high and while the gardens were ok I have seen much better gardens in Melbourne. The Botanical Gardens for one and that is free.
I don’t mind paying to see something of beauty but get a little cross at being ripped off.
