Did you know that not only has the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries exhibition at Rippon Lea Estate been extended to 1 December 2013 (due to popular demand) but also that photography is now permitted?!
Well, WE didn’t! At least, not until we looked it up today (for the first part) and not until we arrived there (for the second part)!!
To explain, my younger sister and her fiancé are visiting from interstate for the weekend and, having seen my previous post on Rippon Lea and being a Miss Fisher fan, asked if we could visit Rippon Lea today.
Had I but known photography was now allowed we would definitely have taken proper cameras – instead, these are pics from Stephen and my iPhones. Apologies for the quality, but I hope you enjoy them all the same if you are unable to attend the exhibition for yourself.

I'm interested in nature, hiking and photography - but these have been somewhat overwhelmed by a new passion... Brompton folding bikes!

Wow Dayna – the photos are amazing – you did so very well with your iPhones.
I am so jealous of the clothes and shoes – I wish my wardrobe was as stunning.
Thank you so much for sharing.

If I was that petite, I suspect I’d be devising ways to buy or make replicas myself! Her coats, though, I could definitely see in my wardrobe. As for the hats – glorious as they are – I’ve tried on similar shaped ones and they just don’t suit, I’m afraid.

Thanks for this post. Where is the exhibition now? Will it be coming to the USA?

I haven’t kept up to date with the exhibitions’ location.
Given both the shows popularity and the delay in making more seasons for the TV series, maybe it will!
Fingers crossed, hey? 😊
