— The Tallis Family Summer House for many decades and from 1950 John
Tallis' home, it houses an amazing collection of items. When John
Tallis died in 1996 he left his house Beleura at Mornington to the
people of Victoria, requesting it become a house museum.
November 2004 his dream was realised and Beleura is now open to the
public in the way he wished, by appointment and with visitors being
welcomed as guests. Guided tours are available for individuals and
groups on selected days throughout the year.
information, history and some photos of the interior of the house
may be found at www.beleura.org.au
