The Barwon Park mansion is just delightful, a complete surprise in this otherwise bland location. I took interstate visitors to the house and they loved it. The volunteer staff dressed in period dress were very pleasant and helpful but not bossy or annoying. The mansion itself is just amazing and the hard work that must have gone into restoring the...

Bluestone and ironwork show off this beautiful building. The Austin family furnished and decorated the mansion with great taste. The main staircase is fantastic and the original furnishings are gradually being returned with other period furniture. The table setting in the dining room is superb and unusual items like commodes and a child's stroller with two prancing horses, makes the... More

I love this building, the architectural features are amazing, the fact that it hasn't been restored or modified particularly during the 60s or 70s is wonderful and it still has no electricity in some rooms! But the gardens are a big let down, there isn't much to speak of really but if you love looking at old houses this is... More

The Dressmaker costume exhibition is truly magnificent. The costumes beautifully made and presented. Barwon Park mansion is a perfect backdrop. Can't wait to return after the exhibition finishes to see it fully furnished in Victorian splendour.

Well Done National Trust for bringing such a wonderfully creative exhibition to the West of Melbourne. This exhibition was well presented by the contours of this marvellous old mansion. The display designer had used rooms, staircase, nooks and crannies to give the audience a wonderful recap of a great Australian movie and novel. The dresses, hats and other accessories were... More

A beautiful building which has been well restored and maintained. Was there for a special costume exhibition and it turned out to be a great venue to showcase this large exhibition. A spectacular staircase and a wonderful courtyard add to the great space for all kinds of functions. The stables have been restored and house a few of the carriages... More

We went to Barwon Park specifically to see the costume display from The Dressmaker, but we would like to return to see all the house with the furniture in it. It's a beautiful old house. We enjoyed the costume display. The costumes are beautiful and so beautifully made. Light refreshments were available, so we had devonshire tea. The scones were... More

We recently went to the "Dressmaker" exhibition at Barwon Park . Was spectacular to view these amazing outfits. The house is well worth a visit. Definately going back to the mansion to explore the beautiful rooms and grounds.
