Visitor Information

Beleura House & Garden is the legacy of Jack Morton Tallis, who left his estate to the people of Victoria for their education and enjoyment. On the day of the appointed visit, visitors will be collected from a nearby location and transferred to Beleura in our courtesy bus. This arrangement adds a little mystery to your visit which we know you will enjoy. All tickets are prepaid, tea/coffee and shortbread are served to guests on arrival and for those with us the whole day a light lunch is served between the House & Garden tours. From the time we meet you with the bus to the time of return to the car park your tour will take approximately four and a half hours.


Wheelchair access to Beleura is limited. Please make us aware of the special needs of any member of your group in advance of your arrival so that we can offer appropriate assistance.
