Bundoora Homestead History Tours

Join us for our history tours, with monthly alternating themes - attend one or both! Each month we will focus on a different period of the Homestead's history, either its first era as a private family home and stables, or its second incarnation as a a convalescent farm for returned servicemen and a repatriation mental hospital. These unique guided experiences explore the stories that shaped Bundoora Homestead.
