Werribee Mansion is only 30 minutes west of the CBD. It's a beautiful heritage building showcasing perfectly restored rooms dating back to the 1800's. There is a fantastic audio tour where you can walk around the mansion listening to the hustle and bustle of what was once a busy home for the Scottish born Chirnside family. The rooms all had a particular purpose for the family. Should you not take part in the audio tour you can read information as you enter each room. Here you learn all about the room's particularly furniture or furnishings, art work, the materials used and who would use the room. It's very fascinating if you enjoy a bit of culture with your history.
If you love gardens there are 10 hectares which you can immerse yourself in. The formal garden includes the mansion's outbuildings and just for something different, a contemporary sculpture walk.
