The gardens are widely attributed to W.R Guilfoyle, Curator of the Melbourne Botanic Gardens. His vision borrows from 19th century gardens of Great Britain and his legacy remains today in the form of a parterre garden, lake, grotto and glasshouses.
A recent addition to the grounds is the Werribee Park Sculpture Walk. Winding through the original farm and riverine, the Sculpture Walk features 29 works by Australias leading sculptors, including selected winners of the national Helen Lempriere Sculpture Award.
Werribee Mansion is surrounded by 10 hectares of manicured formal gardens and open space parkland. Visit the original farm buildings, grotto and laundry, the European inspired parterre or find a spot to relax or picnic on the banks of Werribee River.
Things to Do
The Italianate-style architecture and Victorian features of the 60 room Werribee Mansion are as inspiring today as they were when completed in 1877.
