    Average experience.
    The old house needs a lot of work. The cafe was good. On a self guided walk the horses didn’t really want to know you so it was hard to distinguish which was who. We did manage to get close to a couple of them as we followed a feeding group around. The toilets were a disgrace. Absolutely filthy and smelly and right next to the picnic area. No excuse for this mess.

    Happy Horses
    Great day had with retired race horses. Living Legends like Brew, Who Shot The Barman & Rogan Josh to name a few. Definitely do a tour as you get so much more out of hearing the stories of each horse, their likes & dislikes, and who visits. With a bag of chopped carrots and lots of pats, you'll enjoy spending time with the horses. Finish off your visit with a cuppa tea and scones up at the homestead.

    Mislead - Disapointed
    We were excited to find out that Living Legends did complementary pickup and drop offs from Melbourne Airport, so I messaged them on Friday to organise a pickup for Sunday morning. They responded with the office number to call and said they would love to see us Sunday and they open at 10am 😊. When we called on Sunday, they told us they don’t do pickups on weekends! 🤔Why didn’t they just tell us that when they messaged me back instead of leaving us thinking all we had to do was call today to confirm. Just common curtesy. We checked the Uber cost, which was $50 for 6 minute return trip, so decided not to go. I was happy to support the project, but not if that is the way they treat people.

    Scones to die for
    Sat outside watching the aircraft take off from nearby Melbourne Airport and devoured the delicious scones on offer, big enough for one serve, light and fluffy with fresh cream and jam, do yourself a favour and visit, you may even get to see some living legends..

    Fantastic
    What a great day, we were greeted by Anne on arrival who was helpful and polite. We were given a tour by Danny who was extremely knowledgeable and had a great rapport with all the champions. If you are a punter or a horse lover it is well worth the trip.

    Go, but join the tour
    The bad We did this but on our own as we wanted to time our flight. Bad idea, as most of the horses did not bother to walk up to us. The horses were fed on the tour before we arrived. Kids ended up being pretty disappointed. Also we were in a rush, only had less than 1 hour which is a bad idea. Wasted $30. The good Lady at kitchen was welcoming, charged us $30 which is discounted for 2 adults and 2 kids. 2 of the horses saved the day!

    Living Legends = Music room
    I had my 50th birthday high tea in the music room. The room really met my expectations with piano and harp. I had 17 people and they fitted nicely. The scones were huge and really nice. There were sandwiches quiches cupcakes fruit tea and coffee and juice. The price is also another winner. The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem. Really recommend this place and the room.

    Lovely little spot to have tea and scones while relaxing around the homestead. Lots of walks to do and the opportunity to view some beautiful retired racehorses.

    The best Devonshire tea in Victoria. Wonderful day spent at the homestead. The scones were absolutely amazing and the coffee was great. Thank you Ann for your tremendous hospitality. Ann was very sweet and her scones were amazing. Will definitely comeback.

    Amazing!
    Living legends is absolutely unreal for any racing fan or horse lover in general. Even though it was raining heavily half the time, the two lovely staff who ran our tour (Chanelle and Frank, I think.), were incredibly knowledgeable about all the horses, had great stories to tell, as well as being super friendly, and enthusiastic, despite the weather. Chanelle took heaps of photos of us with the horses, including some absolute beauties, which was really lovely. Overall lovely property, incredibly interesting, and something every racing fan should have on their bucket list to do.

    Wonderful walks
    The historic building and grounds are very good but I really enjoyed walking a bit further to see herds of kangaroos in their natural habitat.

    What a lovely place to visit! A very fitting end to our amazing 10th annual Horse Trip! We are a group of friends who enjoy going to the races and every year we choose a destination. This year it was Bendigo. On our way back into Melbourne, it was decided we would add a visit to this lovely place for morning tea, a tour and lunch. What an excellent choice. We were blessed with a beautiful day and the horses were a delight. Lovely fresh scones with Jam and cream with choice of tea or coffee set us up for a walk around the facility, some did the lot and some sat under a shady tree(that would be me!). Then it was back inside for lunch as the warm sunny day had brought out the flies. Lunch was a wide variety of delicious open sandwiches, and huge cheese and fruit platters. Wine and beer are available for purchase or tea and coffee was included. A fabulous day, and a wonderful finish to our 2018 Horse trip.

    Meet the legends!
    We visited here right after arriving to Melbourne Airport. They provide complementary pick-up service, and also provide drop-off to Melbourne Airport with a fee. This option is very helpful for us as we don't drive. Staffs there are very friendly and welcoming. Although we did self guided tour, it was amazing time strolling around seeing famous horses happily spending their retirement life. All horses looked good in shape, busy feeding themselves but they will not forget entertain visitors. Came closer and see if we got carrots for them...;P Hope to visit everytime whenever I visit to Melbourne!!

Our Probus club visited 23 March 2022. We started with morning tea consisting of two large delicious scones, jam and cream with tea or coffee.

There was a large golf buggy driven by our guide available for anyone who did not want to walk. Our guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and happy to answer our many questions. It was great to hear about the horses history and their personalities.

We had the most amazing informative tour of the majestic x race horses at Living Legend.
Even the 40°degree day didn't spoil our tour.
Wonderful to also see the cemetery where some of these champions are burried.

Did a tour of Living Legends, including lunch at Holgate Brewery and wine tasting at Hanging Rock Winery. Morning tea with huge scones, jam & cream at the homestead was followed by a fantastic guided tour of all the retired champion race horses, including some from Hong Kong. Tayla was a great tour guide. Her knowledge and love for the horses was exceptional. We then were taken for lunch and wine tasting by Tamara from Top Oz Tours. She was a great host, very professional and knowledgeable. Great day, would highly recommend.

We did the tour the day after Melbourne Cup, a very worthy reminder of how well some of the racehorses are cared for after their careers. We had a flight later that day, so we checked our bags at the airport, then LL picked us up to take us to their property (and dropped us back later in the day) for a small fee, which enabled us to fit in our visit.
The estate and gardens are beautiful, you can peruse the history of the homestead in the various rooms, whilst awaiting the tour. The kitchen is a hub of smiles, laughs and chatter and the girls that work there are so welcoming, just like they would be if you were in their own home.
Visiting the horses was delightful, they all had their own personalities, and most were very friendly, particularly when a carrot beckoned!
We also managed to stop for afternoon tea with scones, which I strongly recommend. You will not believe how gooood these scones are, they're reknowned for them, and the absolute best I've EVER tasted! (do NOT miss out on this)

Had the pleasure to visit Living Legends on quiet day and were able to tour the facility with our own private guide. The highly informative and relaxed delivery of information from our outstanding guide made the tour all that more valuable. The staff have a really genuine love of the horses and the jobs they do there and it shows in the smiles on their faces. We were able to feed the horses carrots whilst taking many photos of the beautiful horses as we walked around the easy to navigate, numerous paddocks where the horses were living out their retirement (some are still used for special events). All the staff we encountered were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome, We enjoyed a Devonshire tea which included the most delicious, enormous scones (you really have to try them), in a room overlooking the runways of Tullamarine airport. The gardens are beautiful, the homestead is amazing, taking you back in time to the 1800s. Memorabilia adorns many rooms, as does period furniture. If you are a racehorse lover and interested in Australian history you must visit Living Legends.

It was a treat to visit the Living Legends property today, less than 10 mins from Melbourne Airport. We met and hand fed some beautiful legends of the track and heard about how they are enjoying their retirement. Some of them are true characters. We also visited the historic country homestead and tasted the biggest most delicious scones 😋 Very friendly staff who obviously love the horses. Thoroughly recommend for horse racing enthusiasts.

I recently visited Living Legends and was blown away by how helpful the staff all were. I was picked up from the airport with a little cost involved (still cheaper and nicer than a taxi ride), I was given a wonderful tour around the farm and get a detailed history of each horse and got to feed these living legends of Australian horse racing and then to top of the day had Devonshire Tea overlooking the paddocks and Melbourne International Airport and then exploring the homestead and reading about its very interesting history.

What this place does it amazing for these horses and they rely a lot on volunteers and donations, as horses are expensive to care for at the best of times, let alone when they are retired and can no longer pay their way. It is lovely seeing them all relaxed and happy, especially my personal favorite Might and Power. Will definitely be back for a visit in the future!

We surprised my mum with a trip from Sydney to Melbourne to visit Living Legends. She has dreamt about going but thought she never would.

From the start we knew we were in for a fantastic day. Chelsea picked us up from the airport and took us out to the stunning location. We were treated like old friends and welcomed into the homestead. Annie had prepared a lovely morning tea and I don't think we'll ever have scones that good again!

We spent some time exploring the homestead before Chelsea took us out for a private tour. We were so fortunate to have her spend the day with us. She was friendly, knowledgeable and you could see the horses adored her.

The horses were in fantastic condition and so sociable with us. It was fantastic to see them enjoying their retirement and being treated like kings.

After our tour we had an amazing lunch on the front verandah and again Annie provided an amazing meal for us.

We cannot stop talking about our time at Living Legends and all the lovely staff we encountered. We are already planning our next trip back.

Thank you all for helping make my mums dreams come true!
