I visited Werribee Mansion, Werribee Park, on 25th May 2017, nearly an year ago😮. It was a treat, even though I was not able to enter the portals of the Mansion since it was closed to the public at the time I got there, around three in the afternoon.
Above is a picture of a giant sized astrolabe, I believe, which adorned the Werribee gardens.
Map on how to get there, here.
Today, I’m sharing my visit in pictures, of the beautiful grounds surrounding the Mansion, and in particular, the gorgeous rose 🌹garden belonging to the Mansion.
It was in the grotto that the Werribee family were served tea by a butler during the winter. The grotto walls are decorated with shells and other curios including the teeth of the Werribee children.
