Step back in time at Werribee Park & Mansion
If you’re looking for some open space to let the kids explore, then Werribee Park is definitely for you. With over 10 hectares of beautiful formal gardens and open space parkland they can venture round for free, this historic location is sure to impress.
A highlight of any visit is Werribee Mansion. Built in the late 19th century and one of Victoria’s most beautiful examples of Italianate architecture, the Mansion is open to the public for a small admission fee.
And if you’re up for it, head to the Mansion at night to experience the Haunted Tour to hear the fascinating (and spooky) stories about the founding family. Make sure you have your wits about you as the roaming theatrical performance will definitely have you asking, “What was that?” as you turn each corner.
