Rippon Lea Estate

Galleries, Museums and Collections

An intact example of 19th-century suburban high life, the National Heritage Listed Rippon Lea Estate is like a suburb all to itself, an authentic Victorian mansion amidst 14 acres of breathtaking gardens.

Make yourself at home exploring over 20 rooms in the original estate, its sweeping heritage grounds, a picturesque lake and waterfall, an original 19th-century fruit orchard, and the largest fernery in the Southern Hemisphere.

Open all year, Rippon Lea Estate is Victoria’s grandest backyard.

Mansion tours operate throughout the day subject to guide availability, with the last tour at 2pm. Please note that entry to the mansion is only offered by guided tour.

Visit on select Sundays for the Trust Makers’ Market, brought to you by the Rose Street Markets. Visit the website for confirmed dates.
