Rippon Lea is a large nineteenth century mansion surrounded by 7 hectares of Victorian pleasure gardens. It is listed on the National Heritage Register because it is one of the finest examples of an original suburban estate in Australia.
I recently traveled to Melbourne and decided to pay a visit to the Beautiful Rippon Lea Estate. What a wonderful surprise. This is one of those hidden gems for anyone who loves beautiful old Victorian buildings The grounds are massive and you could easily spend a day getting lost. The tour is very informative and covers all the periods of the mansion from Victorian to the 1940's period. Most of the furniture is original to the building which is wonderful to see and the tours are small groups and very intimate. The staff were very passionate about the history of the building too which was very helpful. A stunning place and definately worth a visit. They also have outdoor movies and a Miss Fisher exhibition coming up if you are a fan of the series and books. There is a cafe or take a picnic by the lake.

The Jewish Holocaust Museum and Research Centre is an institution dedicated to the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945.
This moving memorial is a timely reminder that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. This museum is filled with heart-wrenching exhibits which drive home the tragedy of the attempted annihilation of an entire race of people. Hearing actual life experiences from living survivors of death camps is unforgettable. Meeting them was an honour.

Came on a Tuesday night as all tickets are $10! Couldn’t have a better name for this place. The styling of this place is very classic, but it’s well maintained, clean and the cinemas inside are small but well designed. Seats are comfortable and plenty of leg room. Took up a great offer of tap beer and medium popcorn for $12. Only issue about this place is parking; can be tricky to find so be patient.
