New to the neighbourhood or thinking about settling in Carnegie or Bentleigh real estate? You may be wondering what else the city of Glen Eira has to offer apart from the pristine housing and charming streets.
Here are just three of the many interesting nearby attractions that'll keep you engaged and entertained.
Rippon Lea House and Gardens
The Rippon Lea House and Gardens is one of Melbourne's most iconic and significant historical estates. The centrepiece of the property is an enormous mansion designed in 1868 that housed two families for almost 100 years. This building is surrounded by lush gardens and an expansive lawn that is perfect to lounge on this spring and in the coming summer. The Rippon Lea House also hosts tours and events regularly, such as the recent design exhibition featuring costumes from the ABC TV Series 'Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries'.
Who doesn't like to watch a competition of raw speed and muscle? The Caulfield Racecourse is regarded as one of the finest thoroughbred racing and events complexes in the country, holding prestigious competitions such as the Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup Carnival, as well as other non-racing events like fashion parades and luncheons. Anyone entering the Members' Reserve must adhere to the dress code of formal wear, making it a perfect excuse to get glamorous and dress to the nines.
