Dear Julie and Craig, a short note to thank you for sharing your beautiful garden with us on Sunday. As gardeners of an acre garden we discovered that we could do so much more with the space we have, your garden is an inspiration.Thank you once again and hopefully we will get the opportunity to visit your garden again in March.

Lovely - plenty of colour, although the summer flowers aren't out yet it was still a visual feast.

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.

...only wish that this beautiful garden was open until Sunday April 8! Our group always travel the distance to the Southern Highlands to visit Bundanoon is Brigadoon (always on a Saturday). We are always dismayed that so very few locals ignore the influx of visitors to the area...who have a free Sunday...and would LOVE to see more gardens/village fetes/Sunday Markets in the area.
