Beleura House and Garden is an Italianate mansion built by James Butchart in 1863. Once the Governor of Victoria's Summer House, later the summer residence of Sir George Tallis and his family. Sir George headed arguably the greatest theatrical and entertainment empire the world has ever seen.

Beleura House and Garden is a wonderful time capsule, a theatre of the past, yet it appears that life in the house goes on. Unlike a theatre, Beleura and its contents are real. The magic of Beleura is the depth of its provenance collection of household things, some grand but much ephemeral, trivial and amusing.

Sir George died in 1948, when by family agreement Beleura was inherited by his youngest son, John Tallis, gentleman, composer, who later bequeathed Beleura and its contents to the people of Victoria in 1996 as a place of historic and educational interest.

Beleura hosts an ever popular program of House and Garden Tours, please refer to the Beleura website for details. Bookings are essential, contact Beleura House and Garden today to make a booking.
