National Trust Day: McCrae Homestead

McCrae Homestead is celebrating the National Trust's 60th anniversary by inviting you to come along and discover the history of this property!

McCrae Homestead is one of Victoria’s oldest homesteads and is a physical reminder of the early pioneering life. Built in 1844 by lawyer Andrew McCrae and his artist wife, Georgiana, the Homestead is a rare example of drop slab construction.

Join us at the property for guided tours and enjoy the two sensational galleries located in the Visitor’s Centre which are dedicated to the McCrae family, and the Burrell-Twycross family who lived at the homestead from 1851-1926.


Tours will run on an as needs basis from 11am-4pm (last admission to the homestead is at 3:30pm).
