Como House and Garden


A stone's throw away from Melbourne's shopping mecca and perched high above the Yarra River lies the sanctuary of Como.

Boasting one of Melbourne's finest gardens, an inspiring historic mansion and an impressive collection of antique furniture, the property provides a glimpse into the privileged lifestyle of its former owners, one of Australia's wealthiest pioneer families. Now 160 years old, a visit to Como reveals the life and times of Melbourne aristocracy and offers an insight to the transformation of the city through the Gold Rush, a Depression and two World Wars.

Wander the beautifully manicured gardens and immerse yourself in the history, luxury and inspiration that make Como Melbourne's most glamorous location.

Herring Island Environmental Sculpture Park


Accessible only by boat, Herring Island, 3.2 hectares in size, is just 3 kilometres from the city, and the only substantial island in the Yarra River. This informal parkland has provided the inspiration for curator Maudie Palmer to develop a concept in which artists are commissioned to create site-specific sculptures.

Internationally renowned British environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy has created two works - a slate Cairn and a Stone House constructed from Dunkeld sandstone. Four Australian artists have also installed works on Herring Island: John Davis - A Hill, a River, Two Rocks and a Presence, Jill Peck - Steerage, Julie Collins - Audience, Robert James - The Ramp and Torres Strait Islander, Ellen Jose - Tanderrum.

Melbourne horticulturist Iain Shears has designed a Native Wild Garden using patterns and species which occur naturally in temperate grasslands in Victoria. The wild garden starts flowering in early spring.

Conditions can change in parks for many reasons. For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website.

Be bushfire ready in the great outdoors. Refer to the Bushfire Safety section on the Parks Victoria website for tips on how to stay safe.

Rush Escape Game


Rush Escape Game provides adrenaline filled live escape game experiences to thrill seekers from all over the world.

Our goal for every player of the game is to feel the rush of escaping - others would refer to this experience as "being in the zone" while researchers call it "flow". At the peak of this state you will feel great and perform at your best, action and awareness merge, time flies and self vanishes. If you have ever been involved in an activity or project where everything else was forgotten, then you will be familiar with this state.

Rush Escape Game deliberately focuses on maximising fun, playing this game feels even more exciting and engaging as you realise that no one escapes alone, this means you will need to work together as a team to overcome all of the challenges. Co-operation, critical thinking, pattern recognition and fast decision making will be required, and before you know it, your primal survival and problem solving instincts will surface to help solve unusual puzzles, uncover clues, keys and codes with the ultimate aim of escaping.
