A stone’s throw away from Melbourne’s shopping mecca and perched high above the Yarra River lies the sanctuary of Como. Built in 1847, Como House & Garden is an intriguing mix of Australian Regency and classic Italianate architecture.Boasting one of Melbourne’s finest gardens, an inspiring historic mansion and an impressive collection of antique furniture, the property provides a glimpse into the privileged lifestyle of its former owners, one of Australia’s wealthiest pioneer families. Now 160 years old, a visit to Como reveals the life and times of Melbourne aristocracy and offers an insight to the transformation of the city through the Gold Rush, a Depression and two World Wars.Wander the fountain terrace, enjoy a latte at Cafe Bursaria and immerse yourself in the history, luxury and inspiration that make Como Melbourne’s most glamorous location. You may even want to consider hosting your next party, luncheon, hen's, or wedding on the gorgeous grounds of this hidden gem in South Yarra.Photography is not permitted inside the house at anytime. Photography is allowed in the garden for non-commercial purposes.
