Escape To The Beauty of Werribee Park Mansion


Just half an hour drive west of Melbourne is where I made a refreshing discovery. I arrived for So Frenchy So Chic with Renault: the ultimate picnic for lovers, musicians, families and friends. French was the theme; fresh baguette sandwiches, charcuterie and cheese platters, crepes and glasses of rosé were all on the lunch menu, and conveniently packaged in cute picnic boxes. I wore a simple black off-shoulder top, sass&bide cream high-waisted wide leg pants, and kept it in the (French) family with accessories by Céline (bag), K.Jacques (sandals) and Le Specs (sunglasses).It wasn't until we went for a wander away from the live music that I found beautiful architecture; that of which was the historical building, Werribee Park Mansion. Of course this was the location for the ultimate Frenchy picnic. It fit right on theme and the garden instantly took me back to the gardens at Versailles in France. They said that the geometric garden design is best viewed from the mansion balcony, but I did what perhaps any excited girl would do when faced with this - skip through the pebbled pathways in between the fields of vibrant blooms. Then I found a little spot in the shade to dream the afternoon away. Pretending that I was back in France wasn't a bad idea. Even if it was just for a moment, it wasn't a bad idea at all.How to get there?Public transport: Book a seat on the Werribee Park shuttle. There are daily departures from the National Gallery of Victoria, 180 St Kilda Road, Southbank. Meeting at 9:20am for 9:30am departure, and returning in the afternoon.Related: Where To Find The Best Macarons in Melbourne
