Thornton Park is the Thornton family home and is where the mystery takes place in my book The Dragon Sleeps.
It’s a murder mystery set in the late 1920s.
A Dragon statue. An ancient sword. What treasure is worth killing for?
Alexandra Thornton is determined to discover how these things are connected to the antiques her great-grandfather brought with him from Hong Kong so many years ago. What secret has remained hidden for the last eighty years?
Top left is the main hall, the others are of the drawing room. Far right is my book.
These photos are of the real house that inspired me – Werribee Mansion in Victoria.
You can go through the mansion if you’re visiting Melbourne or Victoria. It’s definitely a worthwhile day.
