A beautiful examples of a nineteenth century three storey terrace house in Australia, 'Tasma Terrace' was built in 1879 for wealthy grain merchant George Nipper as a stylish family home. In 1970, this unique building faced demolition to make room for hi-rise towers before the National Trust stepped in to restore and preserve this unique terrace house.
On display at Tasma Terrace are artefacts and objects from the National Trust collection including items from Polly Woodside and the Old Melbourne Gaol collections.
Tasma Terrace is today the headquarters of the National Trust (Victoria), and has a gallery space, period decorated rooms and meeting rooms. Regular exhibitions and other events are held here throughout the year and is available as a venue for hire for functions, conferences and meetings. There is also a gift shop.
