Lowther Hall Anglican Grammar School

Lawson and Grey 1890


Earlsbrae Hall was built in 1890 for wealthy Melbourne brewer Coiler McCracken. For many years it was also the residence of celebrated Melburnian and Cole's Book Arcade founder E.W. Cole. It now forms part of Lowther Hall Anglican Grammar School, a Kindergarten to Year 12 school for girls. Known affectionately by students as "the Mansion", the building is notable for its high quality materials and elaborate and well-crafted interior spaces.

What's On

Visitors to Lowther Hall will be guided by students in small groups around Earlsbrae Hall, the School's heritage-listed centrepiece building. Visitors will learn about the architecture of the building, as well as the past 103 years of its journey as home to thousands of students at Lowther Hall.
