Entering Glenormiston College through the main gates, you are immediately immersed in its old-world elegance and original charm. The main entrance is lined with ancient elms—a tunnel of green shade in spring and summer and a golden avenue in autumn. Dry-stone walls border the driveway leading to the heritage-listed mansion. The striking two-story bluestone and white stuccoed mansion (circa 1855) stands in a park of magnificent native and exotic plants, featuring trees such as an original gum, a Prussian fir, date palms and an old, giant bunya pine.
Step into the mansion and you will be transported back in time. The mansion features an elaborate interior with ornate details, high ceilings, chandeliers and a maze of rooms. It also features original carvings by Robert Prenzel (1866–1941), one of the most highly skilled professional carvers to have worked in Australia, and includes a handcrafted blackwood staircase.
