Drysdale House is a superb example of high Victorian architecture.
The house was built in Newtown, Geelong and moved to the university campus in 1984 as one of the showpieces of Frank Campbell's visionary collection of some of Victoria's finest and most historic buildings which formed the Australian House Museum at Deakin University, Geelong.
It was then moved to this site in 2004 where it was fastidiously and lovingly restored and extended by a team of expert tradespeople and artists.
Original features include its cast iron lace, high ceilings, Baltic pine floors, walls, ceilings and weatherboards. The hand painted light fittings and 'marbled' fireplaces reflect the enchantment and charm of a 'Grand Age'.
The guest area is the original house which has a private entrance and comprises two bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms, a parlour and a breakfast room, all for the exclusive use of our guests.
