The magnificent Stamford Park Homestead was built in 1882 by the entrepreneurial Row family as a Gentlemans Residence. After many years of neglect the homestead and six acres of grounds have been sympathetically restored, allowing it to once again become the ‘jewel in Knox City’.

Stamford Parks current custodians, Jason McLaren Jones & Brahman Perera have waved their ‘whimsical’ magic of both design and true hospitality over the beautiful estate and it is now a stunning property serving the public for what it was originally intended - a place to gather, meet and entertain.

Stamford Park's Signature High Tea

Tiered silver cake stands laden with petite savoury treats, homemade sweeties and of course Mr Jones’ Grandmothers lemonade scones with Stamford Park jam & Chantilly cream. Boutique Larsen & Thomson tea or Rosso Roasting Co. coffee served in our beautiful dining rooms or in the Courtyard.​ Divine Deliciousness Darling x

High Tea bookings required, available Friday—Sunday from 12pm—5pm


Our garden picnic is enough to satiate two, a carefully curated selection of both savoury and sweeties packed into a transportable picnic box for you to roam around the grounds to find your perfect picnic spot.

Turn it up even a notch by hiring our tables and chairs complete with white linen - or perhaps a game of giant Jenga or Pétanque? We also have a full list of wines, fresh pressed juices and other refreshments available for purchase. 

Please note, the grounds of Stamford Park is fully licensed which means you are unable to bring your own alcohol.  All alcohol must be purchased from Stamford Park. Responsible service of alcohol applies 


Built by Row Family in 1882 as their ‘country residence’, Stamford Park Homestead remains an important part of the Rowville and Lysterfield community.

Stamford Park once again opened in May 2019 after an intensive three year restoration by celebrated Restauranteur Jason M Jones & his 'all things design and aesthetic' partner; Brahman Perera. Quite simply - it was their dream project.

Set on six acres of manicured grounds including a 500sqr mtr Market Garden and 'Taj Mahal' chook coop complete with very happy fancy mother cluckers (try saying that after a few Champagnes!) Stamford Park is the ideal venue for private parties and events with several unique spaces available.


The magnificent Emmeline Dining Room features five-meter ceilings, original plaster roses, antique Persian rugs, Danish brass chandeliers, and a collection of restored balloon back velvet and leather chairs giving the room a grand sense of occasion. The Emmeline Dining Room can currently host up to 22 guests.


The all weather Courtyard however can host sit down dinners up to 80 guests for lunch or dinner or a cocktail style event for 50 to 200 guests. Whether it be a business meeting or wedding dinner, the events team will ensure your party will be flawlessly catered for. 

Stamford Park can also cater and organise marquee parties and weddings on the grounds from 100 - 300 pax these are individually quoted as no party is ever the same!
