Being so passionate about Tourism in Healesville, “us tuckeroos” from the Tuck Inn Yarra Valley have completed the substantial renovation of the former ‘Mechanics Institute and Free library’ into further unique and luxury accommodation options (for adults only) right in the heart of Healesville. Dating originally from 1892, The Old Mechanics has had a fascinating history including the Library, Snooker Hall, Photography studio and Tea Rooms. Now invigorated and ready for the new lease of life this wonderful building deserves.

Offering high specification self-catering accommodation options for up to 8 adults. ‘The Old Mechanics’ can either be let on an apartment basis of which there are four unique options, or, if you book the entire property we open up the kitchen for an additional fee and you can use the large shared spaces for a very comfortable group stay.

This property has a shared lounge and a lovely sun filled rear garden with private off road parking all within 30 seconds stroll into the ‘ville!
