Named after Budapest by its Hungarian owner, Ernest Leviny, Buda was home to the creative family for 118 years. Following in his footsteps, five of his daughters were extraordinarily artistic and Buda houses their significant intact collection of furniture, art works and personal belongings. Themed tours will explore their works, their lives and influences and the collection. A special after dark Lamplight Tour will give a fascinating insight into evenings spent by candles and gas lamps, and tours will also tell the story of goldsmith Ernest Leviny and life on the goldfields. Play the Buda Garden Treasure Hunt app for kids and finally a Twilight Jazz event will make for a special evening in Buda’s Garden room and formal garden.
