Wandering through the Rippon Lea Estate and Gardens

Last weekend, my youngest son and I journeyed to the National Trust's Rippon Lea Estate & Gardens to partake in the 2018 Teddy Bear's Picnic Event.

My son and I had such a wonderful time exploring the grounds of this beautiful property, and whilst the Teddy Bear's Picnic a-once-a-year activity, that doesn't mean you can't visit on another day of the year.



The Rippon Lea House & Gardens is located approximately 7kms from Melbourne’s CBD, in the bayside suburb of Elsternwick and is open every day except Good Friday and Christmas Day.



Join in on the NEW Art of Beer tour of Melbourne, which will cover the city's relationship with beer, its history and the best places to drink and enjoy beer.
The Melbourne Crochet Club meets fortnightly to learn crochet, meet other Melbourne mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
The history of Rippon Lea Estate goes back to 1868, when the mansion was first built. The house was built for Frederick Sargood who made his money selling goods in the gold-fields. The house is named after his mothers maiden name, Rippon. Lea is another word for meadow.

The Estate now belongs to the National Trust (Victoria) who keep the gardens looking immaculate.



Visiting the Rippon Lea Estate and you could easily imagine yourselves being instantly teleported to an English country property. You'd never imagine being so close to a sprawling city.

The mansion itself is perhaps a little tired in places, but it's the gardens that really are quite specular to see.
