With its opulent architecture and largely intact original decoration, Labassa is one of Australia's most outstanding 19th century mansions.

Designed by architect John Augustus Bernard Koch for millionaire Alexander Robertson, the house is a French Renaissance style with an ornate interior.

The interior consists of the finest embossed wallpapers, mahogany timbers and a rare illusionist ceiling enhances the stair hall. Externally it features Corinthian columns, arcaded verandas, classical decoration and inset Italian marble panels.

Labassa Mansion is open every third Sunday of each month from 10:30am to 4:30pm (except December and January). Last entry is at 4:00pm. House tours at 11:00am, 2:00pm and 3:00pm. There is also an external tour at 1:00pm and a Social History tour at 12:00pm. Tearooms open throughout the day.
