Step back in time ...

Owned by the Bayside City Council and operated by the Friends of Black Rock House, Black Rock House is a heritage-listed treasure.  
It was built in 1856 by Charles Ebden, Victoria’s first Auditor-General.
We invite you to visit this intriguing historic Victorian-era home with its castle-style fortress walls,
sand and paint finished exterior and French wallpapers throughout the interior, some reproduced from the original.
