Welcome to Como House & Garden
Como House & Garden Update
The National Trust has been looking closely at Como House & Garden and how we can develop a sustainable business model that will secure its long term future. Following a period of consultation, The National Trust Board has agreed to proposed changes in Como's operations.
Como has moved to a bookings-based operating model. Como is not open to walk up visitors in the short term however, the site will continue to be available for bookings covering group tours of 15 or more people (a minimum of 30 people on weekends), as well as events and private functions. The Trust apologises for any inconvenience that these changes may cause to people who wish to visit on a day-to-day basis over the coming months.
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. You may even want to consider hosting your next party, luncheon, hen's, or wedding on the gorgeous grounds of this hidden gem in South Yarra.
Photography is not permitted inside the house at anytime. Photography is allowed in the garden for non-commercial purposes. For student and commercial filming and photography enquiries please phone (03) 9656 9815.
