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.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Gruffalo’s latest hideout.

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

Please note that until Friday 23 May 2021 the Mansion will be closed for the installation of the Miss Fisher and The Crypt of Tears Exhibition.

Join us on the first Sunday of each month for a Makers’ Market, brought to you by the Rose Street Markets.
