The Heights Heritage House and Garden dates back to the 1850s. The house was built in 1855 and is remarkable for being the largest (14 rooms) German, prefabricated house in Victoria.

During the 1930s, the building was extensively altered to reflect contemporary taste although the extensive gardens, stables, outbuildings and water tower survive intact from the 19th century.

The Heights retains a small collection of fine Georgian furniture collected by the last owners, Louis and Marnie Whyte.

Early 1860s plantings still dominate this beautiful Geelong garden today and the aged oaks and conifers provide great delight to visitors.

The Heights is open on Sunday from 1:00pm-4:00pm. Winter hours: last Sunday of the month in June, July and August.

Opening hours:

Sunday: Open at 1:00 pm - Closes at 4:00 pm
