Great guided tour of a magnificent Australian mansion
mar de 2021
The mansion is stunning, and the one-hour guided tour is so educational and interesting. We learnt a lot about the history of the building, its owners as well as the way people lived in the last two centruries.The $10 entry fee is very reasonable.

A must visit and tour
jan de 2020
We arrived a little early for the first tour at 11am and began chatting with a gentleman doing the gardening. He directed us to the stables, where we enjoyed a look around at the old carriages and rooms before our tour. Our guide was Tom who was a fountain of local knowledge, not only about the house but about the surrounding area. The house is grand and beautifully maintained and furnished. This is certainly a wonderful example of the wealth of the early graziers in Victoria and a piece of history my husband and I were unaware of.

Searching for a little history.
nov de 2019 • Casais
We had heard about Barwon Park but never visited so when we were heading home and passed a sign indicating we were in the region, we decided to take a look. It is a beautiful home and well worth the stop, the tour was essential as our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Well worth a visit, but we missed the tea and scones, next time.

Nice house with interesting history
out de 2019
The tour was lengthy but excellent tour and knowledge by our guide. Very interesting history and facts attached to this mansion, which is not opulent. The connection with the Austin hospital was explained very well. The rooms felt cold despite rather warm and sunny weather outside. We had to take a tour to view the mansion, however a tour is needed to appreciate its importance. Recommended if you have extra time whilst travelling west from Geelong. Note that it is only open on Wednesdays and Sundays (11-4pm).

Excellent tour of squatter opulence
out de 2019 • Amigos
Enjoyed a 90 minute tour of the Barwon Park bluestone mansion at Winchelsea yesterday. Excellent commentary and knowledge of the estate by our guide Elva who was dressed as the housekeeper of the estate. We were blown away by this hidden gem. We had not heard of it in Melbourne but appreciate the connection with the Austin hospital. Congratulations on an excellent experience

Beautiful historical building lovingly restored - fantastic wedding venue.

Stop here on your way to Hamilton spend some time to step back in time. The mansion is rich in beauty and history - gorgeous furniture. It is lovingly restored and beautiful. Great place for a wedding - my daughter was married here in 2012.

VERY DISAPPOINTING VISIT TO THIS MAGNIFICENT MANSION...
fev de 2019 • Casais
Today we decided to visit this magnificent mansion as we have many times before (20+ years) to find upon arrival at 1.10pm on Sunday (today), the grounds were open BUT the door was locked with a note.. Tour times from 11 am and every hour after that until 3pm... We read the info on the Website and there were conflicting days/times and some didn't mention a tour only but the times it was open... Finally we found after reading the previous unfortunate review on here that it was open Wednesdays and Sundays so we arrived today and for the first time ever they are conducting tours only..

WE HAVE BEEN HERE SO MANY TIMES WE DON'T NEED A TOUR AND NOT EVERYONE WANTS A GUIDED TOUR.. We are of the older generation with NO children so don't need supervision NOR do we need the History because we already know it, we just wish to enjoy the Mansion and it's Beauty but it looks like we won't be visiting again after today...

WHILST WE WERE THERE 6 CAR LOADS OF PEOPLE 14 ADULTS IN TOTAL LEFT IN DISGUST JUST LIKE US AND THIS WAS OVER A 20 minute PERIOD.. JUST THOSE PEOPLE AND US ALONE BARWON PARK MISSED OUT ON $140.00 IN ENTRY COST.. HOW MUCH MONEY ARE THEY LOSING OVER THOSE 2 DAYS THAT THEY ARE OPEN, TOO MUCH I SUSPECT!!!

Why???? I want to know why the Guided Tours only? For so many years it cost the same amount of entry fee and one could relax and wander through the mansion at ones own pace and really enjoy just being there as it truly is a magnificent place and worthy of taking the time to take it all in... Ruined for us!!! Will NOT go back as we were so disappointed!!

May I suggest you consider going back to the open house arrangement as it was in the past and just have a couple of guided tours if people wish to go on one but looking at the amount of vehicles in the car park today when we arrived more people left in disgust and disappointment than having the guided tour that was already in progress because more people were locked out..
