Mount Martha House Christmas Fair

Mount Martha House

Mount Martha House has lived many lives, after being built in 1888 and opening in 1889 as a coffee palace, it is now a heritage listed property. 

The house now has a new lease on life with the reactivation of Community Programs and upcoming special Christmas Fair on Saturday 1 December.

The Mount Martha House Historical Audio Trail was also launched earlier this month and features a series of 10 audio stories depicting the property’s rich history and tales from the people who lived them.

If you missed the audio trail launch, or just can’t wait to go back again, come along to the fair and enjoy a great day out with:

• Community group exhibits/displays
• Historical Tour of the house
• A variety of stalls selling locally made craft/goodies
• Sausage sizzle
• Range of kids activities

Plus a special visit from Miss Piggy the Mt Martha Community Bank mascot and Santa!

The historical house offers a range of events and activities including:

  • Playgroups
  • Monthly community lunches
  • Historical tours of the building and much more.

Mount Martha House Community Programs are supported by Mornington Peninsula Shire and Department of Health & Human Services through the Neighbourhood House Coordination Program.

The halls and rooms at Mount Martha House are also available to book for meetings, parties, classes and more.
