Last weekend my family and I went to Werribee Park for a picnic and a look around the mansion there. It was a huge and stunning building with extensive grounds that are free to enter. You have to pay to get entrance to the house but it's beautiful inside and filled with quite a few of the family's original furnishings. Well worth it in my opinion.

|There's a gorgeous black spiral staircase up in the tower at the top.|
|I didn't get many good photos inside because I'm still trying to remember how to use my camera (it's been about a year and a half)|
After going through the house, we went along to the lake and grotto. The grotto was a beautiful dome decorated with seashells and with a little skylight at the top. Unfortunately, it was closed off behind glass so you couldn't go in (or get good photos).
|The grotto is tucked away and accessed via that cave like entrance.|
From the grotto we wandered along to the farm where the homestead and cottage were located.
|The cottage was tiny inside!|
|My feet started to get sore after a while.|
