McCrae Interpretation Centre

McCrae Homestead and Museum will launch a new gallery, Views of Port Phillip Bay, in the re-opened McCrae Interpretation Centre.
Date: 28 October, 31 October and 1 November (12:00pm-4:30pm)
Address: 11 Beverley Road, McCrae (Melway ref: 159 A10)

Built in 1844 by Andrew and Georgiana McCrae, McCrae Homestead is one of Victoria’s oldest homesteads and is a physical reminder of the early pioneering life, using locally available materials and primitive construction techniques.

Georgiana McCrae was an accomplished artist, musician and diarist. Her beautiful sketches are housed in the museum beside the original homestead which contains the rare collection of 19th Century family heirlooms and artworks.
