eleura the 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. Visitors are transferred to Beleura in a 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 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.



Guided Tours are scheduled on selected days throughout the year. Please view our What's On page for details. Payment is requested at the time of your booking.


We always welcome Group Bookings (up to 48 people). Groups are invited to also request dates not listed in our What's On page. Please Telephone 03 5975 2027 to discuss your needs. A deposit is requested at the time of booking and final payment 2 weeks prior to your visit.
