Attractions and Tours / Heritage / The Mary Poppins House

This heritage listed house, built in 1879, was the former home of P.L. Travers (born Helen Lyndon Goff), the author of Mary Poppins. The house originally incorporated the Australian Joint Stock Bank, where Travers Goff, Helen’s father, once worked.

Travers’ home was recreated (with the help of the architect owner of the house who collaborated with the set designer) for the movie Saving Mr Banks. Travers Goff is buried in the Allora cemetery. Guided tour of the house by appointment only.
