Melbourne has so much to offer. I love experiencing new places and events and sharing them with you. I have an interest in gluten free, vegan and vegetarian diets so I will let you know if you these can be catered for in my reviews.

Immerse yourself in the magnificent architecture and garden

James Gall was the architect

It's 1879, the year Ned Kelly and his gang raid the town of Jerilderie, the first use of a parachute in Australia and Graham Berry was the premier of Victoria.

This is the year that Noorilim Estate was commissioned by William Irving Winter on part of his 44,000 estate run near the Goulburn River in Victoria.

Known as Noorilim, (local Ngurai-illum Aboriginal tribe meaning 'many lagoons') this magnificent homestead and its surrounding gardens is now classified by the National Trust, and has only recently been opened to the public again.

Here is your chance to explore the history up close, as you wander through the rooms, view the period features and hear stories from the past.

Some of the trees on this property are older than the house.

Tours run on Sundays, and bookings are recommended. They take a maximum of 20 people in one group, and the tour goes for an hour, but you need to be there half an hour before the start time. Alternatively, you may wander without a tour, and simply pay the entry fee. You are welcome to picnic on the grounds also.

Noorilim Estate offers a gorgeous setting for a wedding. They have already had a number of bookings from couples for their special day. Using local suppliers, the natural setting and historic homestead, weddings are bound to be magical.
