I think this is a place worth visiting once if you love architecure, art and history, I really enjoyed it - however, given that the return Uber trip from central Melbourne cost $60, I don't think I'll be making the journey again!

Three buildings with paintings and some sculptures throughout. A short but detailed introduction to each artist ahead of several pieces. The original building is set in the midst of a beautiful cottage garden, a small orchard and vegetable patch. The next building is a large...More

We had a very inspiring tour of the sculptures from Nasrin who, as a sculptor herself, gave us not only information about the artists and their works, but also the methods used to make the pieces. Loved it! Dianne 23.05.18 Wednesday 2 pm

Picnic lunch would be perfect and there is no charge to go in the grounds. Not sure about dogs but you could ring Heidi and find out. The grounds are large so I imagine there would be no problem.
