Behind the scenes: Napier Waller House

Join National Trust of Australia (Victoria) Property Manager, Tony Armstrong for an exclusive tour of Napier Waller House. Tours will start from July 2 2019 and will be the first Tuesday of each month thereafter. There will be two tours at 10am and 2pm and each tour will take 45 minutes - 1 hour, with a maximum of 15 people per tour.

The history of Napier Waller House is often associated with the life and career of noted Australian muralist, mosaicist and stained glass artist Napier Waller. Less is known however about the women who also worked within these walls. Christian Waller worked alongside her husband to establish this superb Arts and Crafts style home, whilst also pursuing her own successful career. Christian’s young niece Klytie Pate came to live in the house, going on to become one of Australia’s foremost studio potters of the twentieth century. Napier’s second wife Lorna, also a talented artist, worked alongside Napier to create the Hall of Memory mosaic for the Australian War Memorial. 

Join Tony and enrich yourself in the lives of those that lived, created, loved, and lost in Napier Waller House. 

Please note there is no street parking. The un-restored condition of Napier Waller House means that it is not wheelchair accessible, and there are sections that may not be suitable for people with mobility impairments.
