Welcome to Noorilim Estate

Noorilim Estate is located near Murchison in Central Victoria only 90 minutes drive north of Melbourne.

The mansion was built in 1879 for William Irving Winter, later William Irving Winter-Irving, a wealthy pastoralist and member of the Victorian Legislative Council for the Northern Province (1884-1901).

The architect, James Gall, built a home that now holds a central position over the alluvial flats of the lower Goulburn River and its associated vineyards. Noorilim is one of the finest examples of Italianate architecture in Australia.

In 1888, photographs of Noorilim were exhibited at the Centennial Exhibition in Melbourne to great national acclaim.

The estate is surrounded by 20 acres of picturesque botanical gardens, an ornamental lake and 75 acres of vineyards that are home to over 150 species of native birds and mammals including Laughing Kookaburras, Cockatoos, Parrots, Koalas and Kangaroos.
