Rippon Lea House is an old Romanesque suburban mansion built in 1868 and located just 20 minutes from the CBD in Elsternwick.

Once you've paid the $12 entry fee the magnificent gardens and impressive house form a great backdrop for a picnic with friends or family.

Before settling down on your preferred patch of grass you can tour the house and gardens, soaking up the atmosphere of colonial opulence and ease.
