Como House and Garden

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Built in 1847, Como House and Garden is one of Melbourne most glamorous stately homes. A unique blend of Australian Regency and classic Italianate architecture, Como House offers a rare glimpse into the opulent lifestyles of former owners, the Armytage family, who lived there for over a century.

Famous among Melbourne high society for its elegant dances, dinners and receptions, the Armytage home remains furnished with original family heirlooms, and even the servant’s areas have been carefully preserved.

Explore this iconic heritage landmark that stands as a world of its own, picnic in the magnificent gardens and enjoy a meal by the popular Stables of Como cafe.

Guided tours of the house operate on select Wednesdays and Fridays (2:00pm only), and Saturdays and Sundays (11:00am, 12:30pm and 2:00pm).
