Black Rock House was built in 1856 by Victoria's first Auditor-General, Charles Hotson Ebden as his seaside retreat. Complete with a castle wall and Moreton Bay Figs, this historic home in the Melbourne Bayside suburb of Black Rock has a fascinating past.
Throughout its rich history, Black Rock House has been utilised as a meeting place for Melbourne's elite, as a retreat for Governor Sir Henry Barkly and also as a private house.
