A stone's throw away from Melbourne's shopping mecca and perched high above the Yarra River lies the sanctuary of Como.
Boasting one of Melbourne's finest gardens, an inspiring historic mansion and an impressive collection of antique furniture, the property provides a glimpse into the privileged lifestyle of its former owners, one of Australia's wealthiest pioneer families. Now 160 years old, a visit to Como reveals the life and times of Melbourne aristocracy and offers an insight to the transformation of the city through the Gold Rush, a Depression and two World Wars.
Wander the beautifully manicured gardens and immerse yourself in the history, luxury and inspiration that make Como Melbourne's most glamorous location.
