Osborne House Growers Market

The historic Osborne House overlooking Corio Bay is one of Geelong’s most magnificent buildings. With a history dating back to 1858 the house has served many uses including as a homestead, the Victorian Premier’s country retreat, Australia’s first naval training college, a hospital, submarine base, and shire offices for the former Shire of Corio.  Today the house grounds are used by the Geelong Maritime Museum, a range of community groups and events.
