Garden Guide

We commenced construction of the garden in 2001. Although we didn't have a 'master plan' we knew we'd be able to create an interesting garden due to the slope of the 1 acre block.

There were some existing eucalypts on the proper ...

Visitor Comments

We traveled from Canberra just to visit this garden as we had heard that it was worth a visit. It certainly was! There were so many 'ooh' and 'aah' moments. Plans have already been made to return in Spring.

I visited about 2 weeks ago and the garden looked ithe best I have ever seen it. There was so much out in bloom and it all looked very lush in spite of the hot summer. Feb/March are great months to visit this lovely garden. Congratulations to the owners!

What a great garden! The flowers were in full bloom even in early March. We came to the Southern Highlands expecting only some flowers to be in bloom, but there was a huge variety of colour. Wonderful for my 10 and 7 year old girls, who enjoyed hunting for the fairies, rabbits and pixies!
