Welcome to Como House & Garden


A stone’s throw away from Melbourne’s shopping mecca and perched high above the Yarra River lies the sanctuary of Como.

Please note: the mansion at Como is open every weekend throughout Spring and Summer. The mansion is NOT open to visitors during the week. The gardens are free to explore and are open every day.

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. Set on the corner of Williams Road and Lechlade Ave in South Yarra, residents of Como enjoyed a glorious vista across the Yarra River and towards the then-fledgling city of Melbourne.

Wander the beautifully manicured period gardens and immerse yourself in the history, luxury and inspiration that make Como Melbourne’s most glamorous location.

Enjoy a coffee or a leisurely lunch at the Stables of Como Cafe. The Stables of Como is open 7 days a week for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea. The Stables and Como's Garden will be open to visitors from Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm. For more information about the Stables of Como click here or call (03) 9827 6886.
