Step back in time ...

Owned by the Bayside City Council and run by custodians, the Friends of Black House, this unique holiday house a heritage-listed treasure.  
It was built by Victoria’s first Auditor-General Charles Ebden from 1856-58.
We invite you to visit to this intriguing historic Victorian era home to see the castle-style fortress wall,
sand and paint finish and French wallpapers reproduced from the originals.
