The space

One of the oldest and grandest estates in the district, Gainsborough Park dates back to the 1880s. Built by local pioneer, Captain Tonkin, this magnificent 35-acre property is approached by a long tree-lined driveway and set in picturesque cottage gardens. This truly unique estate enjoys unsurpassed sea and rural views over Western Port Bay, including Phillip Island and The Nobbies. A former commercial daffodil farm, the grounds explode with colour come wintertime with around an acre of jonquils and daffodils. The estate includes an established, working vineyard. The house itself boasts elegant living on a grand scale with many of the original features intact (including marble fireplaces and terrazzo flooring). Gainsborough Park has been cherished by the same family for over thirty years and it is hoped that the estate will remain in the family for generations to come.
