Important Updates


It’s just a little while longer, but you can now circle the date in your diary. We are excited to announce that the gardens at Rippon Lea Estate will re-open from 10am on Wednesday 4 November.

Come and witness the splendour of spring while our gardens are at their botanical best and bursting with colour. Take a leisurely wander around acres of green space, relish a picnic lunch under a centuries-old tree, or bring the kids along to explore the Gruffalo Spotter 2 Trail with new interactivity.

If we are able to re-open prior to 4 November, you’ll be the first to hear it. Plus you can stay up to date with the latest updates and information on our website.

We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you in the garden soon.


In accordance with the revised Victorian state government guidelines, the Miss Fisher and The Crypt of Tears Exhibition will re-open at a later date.
