Werribee Mansion, Sovereign Hill and Ballarat Day Trip 5

Description

Visit Werribee Park Mansion and discover the story of an Australian pastoral empire. Construction of the large basalt and sandstone mansion was completed in 1877 for the Chirnside family who were originally from Scotland, and made their fortune from wool across the Western District of Victoria.

Werribee Park Mansion is one of the largest and most opulent properties in Victoria. With 60 rooms across several wings, the mansion is in a Renaissance Revival style, with a symmetrical two storey central block, dominant tower, and a ground level arcade on three sides of the block.

The fine interior includes some original furniture set within a richly decorated entry hall containing a Minton encaustic tiled floor, niches, Corinthian pilasters, and free-standing columns leading to a grand staircase. The main reception rooms, library and dining room are all classically ornamented.

Despite the grandeur, expense, and status of the mansion, it remains a mystery as to who the designing architect was.

The mansion was converted into a seminary in the 1920s, and the entire estate was then purchased by the State Government in 1977.

You might recognise the striking exterior and opulent interiors of the Mansion as it has featured as a backdrop in some of Australia’s favourite film productions and television shows including Miss Fisher, Winchester, and Neighbours.
