Bishopscourt has a very special place in Melbourne’s garden history.

Founded in 1848, Bishopscourt is one of the oldest properties in East Melbourne and is the official residence of the Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne. It is the last intact urban estate within the City of Melbourne.

The garden was designed in the Gardenesque style and features extensive plantings, sweeping lawns and fruit and vegetables all interwoven with a series of serpentine paths.

Resident bishops and archbishops and their families have all enjoyed the garden and made their own contributions to it over the decades.

We have a wonderful opportunity to discover and rediscover the significant events, people and stories of this building that is so closely linked to Victoria's early development.

The event includes:

  • Followed by tour of the gardens - to finish by 12 noon
  • $30 TGA Members  $35 NON TGA Members 
  • Please note: $20 of the ticket price is donated to the venue.
