“It is a privilege Woodlands Historic Homestead at Living Legends will be featured in the Open House Melbourne program again in 2019,” Cr Moore said.
“Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the retired champion racehorses of Living Legends, who call the property home with free tours on offer during Open House Melbourne .
“Across the Open House Melbourne weekend, Saturday 27 July and Sunday 28 July, a remarkable collection of historic, contemporary and culturally significant buildings will be on show.
“I look forward to locals and visitors alike taking the opportunity to enjoy one of Hume’s most unique properties and discovering some of our other local treasures while they are in the region.”
Greenvale’s Woodlands Historic Homestead is one of the oldest built structures in Hume, with construction dating back to 1842. Following its construction, the homestead and associated outbuildings retain many of its original features.
New Phar Lap and Carbine memorabilia, including Phar Lap’s bridle and shoes worn by both Phar Lap and Carbine will be on display from the Open House Melbourne weekend.
