Tour of the Fernery and Victorian Pleasure Garden

1pm - 2pm

Tuesday 23 April, until Wednesday 15 May

The gardens at Rippon Lea Estate are of national significance, a tranquil oasis in the heart of suburbia. In the heart of the Estate lies the Rippon Lea Fernery, the largest surviving Victorian Fernery in the Southern Hemisphere and possibly the world.

As part of the Australian Heritage Festival, join the tour to hear the social history of these pleasure gardens and take a detailed look inside our fascinating Fernery. On completion of the tour, why not enjoy some light refreshments in our Gatehouse Tea Rooms (additional charges apply).

Tours run at 1pm every Tuesday & Wednesday from 23 April – 15 May
