Buda is an historic house and garden surviving from the gold rush era in Castlemaine, Victoria. It was named after Budapest by its Hungarian owner, Ernest Leviny, a noted colonial silversmith and jeweller. Buda was home to the creative Leviny family for 118 years and houses their significant intact collection of furniture, art works, decorative arts and personal belongings. Buda celebrates Australia's European heritage through the preservation and interpretation of the historic property, by presenting and promoting public programs linked to heritage themes, the arts, horticulture, heritage conservation and sustainability. We encourage engagement with diverse audiences visiting Central Victoria.
