The National Trust has a duty to protect the safety and well-being of our visitors, staff, volunteers and community. The National Trust is taking these steps as part of Australia-wide action to contain the coronavirus.

At this stage we don’t have a scheduled date for reopening, but will continue to monitor the situation and all government advice and provide regular updates through our website and our social media, Facebook and Instagram.

While we are closed, our staff will continue to protect the Estate, gardens and collection as we prepare to reopen.

Our goal is to do everything we can to help curb the spread of this outbreak in Victoria.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
