Rippon Lea Estate

Rippon Lea Estate is one of Australia's finest grand suburban estates and the first to achieve National Heritage Listing, recognising its unique significance.

Located only 20 minutes from Melbourne's city centre, the historic mansion is situated within a vast garden of sweeping lawns that cover more than 14 acres and features a windmill, lookout tower, heritage orchard, lake, waterfall, fernery and more.

Come and spend an afternoon meandering through the mansion, relaxing with a book on the lawns, climbing the lookout tower, playing croquet on the Nursery lawn or enjoying a coffee in the Gate House.
