We were able to rent Labassa for a memorial service. There were approximately 60 people in our group including several children. The venue was perfect for our event, as the service was held in a room ... more »
All the land around this grand mansion has been sold over the years, so it is a very hidden treasure, but a delight for those who find it. What an amazing place this must have been before suburbia gre... more »

Beautiful building, so glad the NT was able to save it. A shame it is so closely surrounded by modern box homes but worth a visit! The guides were great, definitely recommend joining a tour for more info, wonderful volunteers. Tea room was great for scones & sandwiches. Just a warning, we didn't know that entry is cash only. Enjoyable few hours on a Sunday afternoon.

This one-time mansion is famously mentioned in Slessors "Five Bells" - arguably Australia's favourite poem. At that time the place had seen better days - and was more of a boarding house. (Hence the small rooms - "6 x 8") It was also home to Louise Lovely for a time - star of "Jewelled Nights" - actor, director, female (obviously) and Australian. Labassa then is a place of pilgrimage for devoteees of Australian poetry and cinema. Was once owned by Alexander William Robertson - founder of Cobb and Co. Transport. (A familiar name from Australias early days.) The architecture is grandiose, the gardens immaculate. Unfortunately the house is only opened to the public 10 days a year and not in December - so seeing inside was not an option. Find it in the back streets of Caulfield - and get your daydreaming on.
Great for wedding photos
My favourite Trust property! Absolutely outstanding
The opening times are wrong. Labassa is open every 3rd Sunday of the month and closed in December.
