About this event

Ziebell’s Farmhouse Museum & Heritage Garden is Victoria’s oldest German immigrant building. It is located at the heart of the Westgarthtown Pioneer Precinct in Melbourne's northern suburbs.

Westgarthtown Pioneer Precinct is a 19th Century German village with state, national and increasingly, international significance. It comprises farmhouses, Australia’s oldest operating Lutheran Church (1856), a pioneer cemetery (1850).

Ziebell’s Farmhouse is the largest of the remaining German/Wendish farmhouses with four generations of the Ziebell family living in the home until the 1980s. In 2018 it became an accredited museum.

Our house museum features original furnishings, permanent and temporary exhibitions that focus on Westgarthtown and other related, contemporary themes. Along with its cart shed, smokehouse, bathhouse and cottage garden, the museum conveys a more simple and sustainable work life, coupled with the socially and culturally rich life of Westgarthtown.
