Historical Fun at Mulberry Hull
Mulberry Hill is a heritage-listed American Colonial Style home built in 1926, which is now under the care of the National Trust of Australia (Victoria).
The house belonged to accomplished artist Sir Daryl Lindsay, the former Director of the National Gallery of Victoria from 1941 to 1956 and the Trust’s first president in Victoria. Sir Daryl lived in the property with his wife Lady Joan Lindsay; an artist and writer, famed for her novel Picnic at Hanging Rock.

This Father's Day, Mulberry Hill will host a special event to celebrate all Dads, Pas, Papas and Gramps!
The Baxter & District Classic Car club will present a display of vintage vehicles on the day, and their owners will be on hand to answer questions.
Families are encouraged to get involved in some investigative play, completing an ‘eye spy’ sheet available at the front desk on entry. Find historical objects located throughout the property and 'tick off' on your sheet once spotted.
