The grounds of Rippon Lea are immaculately kept and are quite serene and lovely whilst also containing lots of plants and trees which are heritage listed also.

Outside the mansion and on the grounds:

Spirit of Place: Rippon Lea Estate (Inside The Mansion)

To say I am obsessed with the late 1800’s and early 1900’s is an understatement as I adore the fashion, decor, music and the social graces of life back then. So as a belated birthday gift I spent a few weekends ago at the heritage trust estate called Ripponlea.  I was there to peruse the Miss Fisher costume exhibit (details here: http://missfisherexhibition.com.au/) as some of the scenes for this 1920’s themed tv show was shot there.

Rippon Lea was built in the late 1800’s and was a family home to two families who lived on the estate for over 100 years, until it was donated to the National Trust, to protect it when the last owner passed in the 1970’s.  Its style is in the Victorian Italiante, which was popular during the gold rush boom happening in the state at its construction.

Inside the mansion:
