Mount Mitchell Estate has an amazing history, celebrating 180 years in 2018. The homestead and stables have been listed with the National Trust as buildings of significance.

The 10 acres of impressive garden spaces include expansive lawns, many historic outbuildings, established trees, significant hedging, a substantial kitchen garden, an orchard and a beautiful formal rose garden.

The property has been the setting for numerous spectacular events, including weddings, open garden weekends, club visits and other special occasions. Sharing the property with the public on these occasions has always been well received. A beautiful bluestone cottage on the estate is available for accommodation.

Club visits include a tour of the estate by the current owner, informing guests of the wonderful history of the property and the stories of interest associated with the various owners of Mount Mitchell. Tour groups are shown through the extensive gardens and some of the historic outbuildings throughout their visit. The tour takes approximately one hour.

Visitors have the option to stay on for either a morning/afternoon tea or a wonderful luncheon in the National Trust listed stables.

As the homestead is a private residence, it is not open to the public.

The nearby historic gardens and the wonderful Lambley Nursery could make for a beautiful day out.

Mount Mitchell Estate is only open by appointment or for scheduled events.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
