Como House and Garden

Immerse yourself in the history and luxury that make Como Melbourne’s most glamorous stately home.

Built in 1847, Como House and Garden is an intriguing mix of Australian Regency and classic Italianate architecture.

Como offers a glimpse into the privileged lifestyle of former owners, the Armytage family, who lived there for nearly a century.

The Armytages became famous amongst Melbourne high society and equally famous for their many elegant dances, dinners and receptions. Those elegant dining and reception rooms are still furnished with Armytage family heirlooms and even the servants’ areas, kitchen and laundry have been preserved.

Como gardens are freely accessible and open Mon to Sat 9am to 5pm and Sun 10am to 5pm.

Como Shop & Gallery and Book Shop open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 3pm.

Como House tours: Wednesdays & Fridays (1.30pm), Saturdays and Sundays (11am, 12.30pm and 2pm). See pricing information below.
