If you visit our Mornington Peninsula then a visit to McCrae Homestead is a must. It's all about our Victoria's early settlement. To see the homestead amongst modern suburban dwellings is amazing. Story of Georgiana McCrae is fascinating. How did they all survive?
We came today with two kids 3 and 6. We were given a tour by Katherine and were surprised by how lovely and full of history it was. The guides are so knowledgeable and accomodate the kids. It’s national trust so only $26 for the...More

It makes you wonder how we can survive so easily today with all...More

Interesting early history. The homestead itself was fascinating. However, the guide's lecture before the tour was over-long and slow. Also the talk made the common mistake of marveling that the people of the past were different to us. They weren't that different.
We visited McCrae Homestead, Victoria’s oldest original existing house (built in 1844), on one of the largest leases in Port Phillip colony – originally 20,500 acres!! Run by volunteers of the National Trust of Australia and just up the road from the beach and nice...More
