There is a cultural gem located in the heart of Castlemaine - Buda Historic Home and Garden. The authentic goldfields villa house is surrounded by eight acres of tranquil gardens - the perfect place for a picnic! Book an exclusive Buda gourmet hamper lovingly prepared by Melanie of Fryers Teahouse. The hamper includes local produce presented in your own quaint little picnic basket. Be sure to also include a viewing of this historic home of the Leviny family. For lovers of the arts and crafts movement, heritage gardens and gold rush architecture, this house is a must - housing lots of artwork by the Leviny family themselves, as well as other well-known local artists.  Cap off your visit with a gentle stroll around the grounds visiting the aviary birds and perusing the lovely wares in the gift shop. You haven't experienced Castlemaine until you've rolled out the rug in these picturesque surrounds and familiarised yourself with the talents of the Leviny family! 

Buda is also offering an exciting program of art workshops and events during the Castlemaine State Festival - for more details, please view their website.
