Rippon Lea House and Gardens
Located around seven kilometers from the CBD in the suburb of Elsternwick, Rippon Lea House and Gardens is an expansive heritage-listed property dating back to 1868. Once home to one of Victoria’s most influential families, the mansion, and surrounding gardens are now open to the public. Picture a leisurely day spent exploring a 19th-century mansion before wandering through the gardens and settling by the lake for an aristocratic afternoon of cake and croquette (for hire). Spoil yourself and allow Carre Street Pantry House to take care of lunch with one of their hampers packed with sandwiches and canapés. They can also do an Anti-Pasto Platter and Cheese & Dried Fruit Platter.
