Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Victoria / Mornington Peninsula / Mornington / Beleura House & Garden
Beleura at Mornington, erected in 1863 for James Butchart, was bequeathed to the people of Victoria by Jack Morton Tallis as a place of historic and educational interest. Beleura and its land, acquired by Sir George Tallis (1869-1948) and Lady Tallis in 1916, and from 1950 the home of Jack Morton Tallis (1911-1996) is deemed of national significance. The gardens retain elements of an earlier pre-1900 garden. Commencing in 1952, Jack Morton Tallis overlaid his parents' garden with a romantic, idiosyncratic version of an Italian garden. The contents provenanced to members of the Tallis Family, are of major significance for the depth of their completeness and include furniture, fine and decorative art, soft furnishings, books, photographs, domestic goods, theatrical memorabilia, items of gentlemen's apparel and general household paraphernalia.Arrange your visit to Beleura House & Garden and discover more family-friendly attractions in Mornington using our Mornington trip itinerary maker tool.
