Tay Creggan, a magnificent heritage building on the Yarra, was built as a family home by architect Robert Guyon Purchas in 1893. It showcases Victoria’s finest examples of Victorian Queen Anne Revival with elements of Elizabethan Revival, 19th century Eclecticism, Arts and Crafts, Picturesque Gothic and Art Nouveau. Tay Creggan is now Strathcona Girls Grammar’s home to the Year 9 TC Envision Program that teaches life-ready skills through entrepreneurship.
Take a virtual tour of the magnificent heritage building, Tay Creggan, and learn about its interesting history narrated by a Strathcona Girls Grammar student.
You can also take a tour of Tay Creggan in Minecraft. This has been cleverly created by two of our Year 9 students.
Download a booklet on the History of Tay Creggan and discover the building through the years, plus information on the architect, Robert Guyon Purchas and the story of how it went from being a family home on the banks of the Yarra River to Strathcona Girls Grammar’s Year 9 campus, and home to the Year 9 TC Envision Program that teaches life-ready skills through entrepreneurship.
Children will challenge the future of art by creating their own robotic artwork as a taster of Strathcona’s innovative Tinker Train.
