Disco fever hits Melbourne's historic Rippon Lea Estate with "Super 70s" - an exhibition celebrating 1970s fashion
All the cool cats of Melbourne know where the good vibes are at this spring - at least in the fashionable sense because Super 70s has opened at the Rippon Lea Estate in Elsternwick.

Celebrate all things groovy at the National Trust's heritage-listed historic house and gardens, just 9 km south-east of Melbourne's CBD.
Super 70s Fashion Exhibition
This exhibition, which celebrating all things 70s from clothes to decor, art to pop culture, spans two floors of the historic house.
Although you may not think to take your children along to a fashion exhibition, the littlest people in your family are most certainly welcome.
There is an emphasis that all visitors; children and adults alike should "look but not touch", which is to be expected considering the collection of vintage goodies on display.

That said, there is one room encouraging all visitors to try their hands at a little string art - this is great for visiting children.

The Rippon Lea Estate is a wonderful venue to visit at any time of the year. Why not spend the day here and picnic in the gardens or stop for tea and sandwiches in the tea rooms.

Visit Super 70s at the Rippon Lea Estate and step back in time to an era where fashion was perhaps as it's most ecelctic; from psychedelic prints to platform shoes, flared jeans to crochet vests, pantsuits to long leather jackets and embroidered hippie frocks to hot pants!
Super 70s at Rippon Lea Estate is open every day from 10am to 4pm.
