High Tea in Scottish Baronial Castle

Enjoy the Ultimate in Old World Grace and Charm

Welcome to Overnewton Castle- a Scottish Baronial style Homestead built-in 1849. Situated in Keilor Village, just 20 min drive from Melbourne CBD. If you are looking for a high tea experience that is unlike anything else in Melbourne then you must visit us and spend the day exploring our 4 acres of immaculate gardens and book a Tour (as an add on), so you can learn about the history of Overnewton Castle and it’s first pastoral landowners in Victoria.

Relax with friends over a selection of delicate pastries, fluffy scones, jam and cream, English tea sandwiches and petite fours with free-flowing Twinning’s Tea and Vittoria Coffee. The Castle holds public high teas on the selected dates listed below so it is important to make bookings for all listed dates. The property is privately owned and not open for wandering in the gardens outside of the selected dates but the current owners of this Historic building are present at The Historical Tour and welcome you to purchase a tour at 11 am before the High Tea sitting.
