Waller House Garden VolunteersNational Trust of Australia Head Office (Vic)
The National Trust of Australia (Victoria) (NTAV) is an independent, non-profit organisation supported by a large community base. We are Victoria’s premier heritage and conservation organisation and the major operator of historic properties and sites open to the public across Victoria.
About the property Napier and Christian Waller’s murals, mosaics and stained glass adorn prominent buildings and churches in Melbourne and other parts of Australia. In particular Napier Waller was responsible for the mosaics and stained glass in the Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. Their Ivanhoe home and studio has been left intact as a memorial to their work and as a place of learning about monumental art.
The history of Waller House is often associated with the life and career of noted Australian muralist, mosaicist and stained glass artist Napier Waller. Less is known however about the women who also worked within these walls. Christian Waller worked alongside her husband to establish this superb Arts and Crafts style home and garden, whilst also pursuing her own successful career.
