Lislea house is a Heritage Listed two-storey stately home, built in 1892 for Dr. Wynne and housed his surgery and residence. It is located on the fringe of the Colac CBD in close proximity to shops, restaurants and the city's Park, Performing Art Centre and Cinema and a short walk to Lake Colac., The property has been restored to its former splendour and has been tastefully furnished to create a warm and homely atmosphere. Its solid brick construction, high ceilings and spacious rooms create an image of what life was like for the pioneering gentry.
