Buda Historic Home & Garden

Galleries, Museums and Collections Historical Sites and Heritage Locations Parks and Gardens

Buda Historic Home and Garden is one of the great heritage assets of the Goldfields region. From 1863 Buda was the home of the noted silversmith Ernest Leviny and his family. It contains the family’s art and craft collections, furnishings and domestic effects and was home to the remarkably creative Leviny family for a period of 118 years.

The gracious historic home is surrounded by one of the most important large 19th century gardens surviving in Victoria.

Australian art is also displayed, works by many prominent Australian artists including Margaret Preston, M J McNally, Ursula Ridley Walker and Lionel Lindsay.

The Buda Historic Home and Garden now has the Buda Nursery. The plant nursery offers for sale a wide range of heritage trees, shrubs, roses and ground covers ideally suited to Australian conditions.

The Gift shop has a range of Buda exclusive merchandise featuring Leviny designs and other original pieces for visitors to purchase and take home. Also in stock is local produce, delightful craft items, and souvenirs.
