Johnston Collection information
Making for a fascinating visit, not only will you see the exquisite collection of sharp-eyed antique dealer William Johnston in his majestic East Melbourne mansion, but you'll hear his intriguing back story. It's popular with repeat visitors as the furniture and items are changed every three months – different curators, usually an artist or designer, thematically rearrange the house from Johnston's collection. Tours depart from Hilton on the Park, leaving three times daily. Booking is required.
