Welcome to Buda

Buda is an authentic goldfields villa house and garden located in Castlemaine Central Victoria.

Named after Budapest by its Hungarian owner, Ernest Leviny, it was home to the creative Leviny family for 118 years and houses their significant intact collection of furniture, art works and personal belongings.

Come to Buda and enjoy walking through the historic house where you will be transported to another era, in this Museums Australia accredited museum. Wander three acres of heritage garden featuring original plantings and structures, including the bird aviary, tennis pavilion and grape pergola, along with many original garden ornaments created by the Leviny family members.

The Buda Giftshop stocks unique giftware, homewares and jewellery featuring original Leviny designs as well as art cards and craftwork produced locally.

The Buda Plant Nursery stocks heritage and drought-hardy plants as well as a variety of fruit trees and native plants.
