Mortimer Pass closure
Mortimer Pass is closed between January and May 2019 while Scentre Group undertake civil works including street beautification and complete the new Westfield Newmarket living centre. There is no road or pedestrian access to Highwic from Mortimer Pass during this time. The main entrance at 40 Gillies Avenue is open - please see the this map (pdf) for detour details. Thank you for your patience.
A visit to Highwic during the Easter holidays is going to be heaps of fun for children of all ages, see the house and gardens and while you are there take part in the "Peter Rabbit Trail" that will be running over the Easter holiday week during our usual opening hours of Wednesday - Sunday (closed Good Friday). These exciting activities will take children through every room in the house and around our award-winning garden.
Children hunt for images of Peter Rabbit hidden in the house and grounds, and everyone who completes the trail can go into the draw to win a super prize.
Visit Highwic during our Coal Range Cooking days and see, smell and taste cooking being done on our authentic Victorian coal range.
