Barwon Park

A popular venue for concerts, weddings, and military re-enactments.

Imagine cleaning it: all 42 rooms! House and adjacent stables in original condition, faithfully restored. Features delicate ironwork over the entrance and verandah, a grand staircase, stained glass windows, and interior arches on the upper floors.

Owned by the Austins, who built it, and then Batsons, who bequeathed it to the National Trust.

Thomas Austin is renowned for introducing the rabbit to Australia; his wife Elizabeth, for founding the Austin Hospital.
