Passion in a cool climate

The garden you see came about through the inspiration of Barry Byrne and is the result of more than 20 years hard work. His passion has transformed horse paddocks into the massed plantings, lakes, springs, vistas and walkways you see today. Spring and Autumn are the best times for colour, but Bebeah is lovely all year round. Wander past hedges that merge with sweeping lawns, white gravel drives and pathways, around the lakes and springs, classical statuary and take in enticing glimpses of immaculately framed vistas.

Stunning colours all year round

Azaleas, rhododendrons, cherry blossom and more ... the Mount Wilson area is famous for its amazing cool climate gardens and Bebeah is a gem at its centre though all seasons.

Visitor Comments

A breathtaking & beautiful garden leading you into different areas full of surprise and beauty. We wandered around for hours as one garden led into another and although the autumn colour had not happened it was still a stunning garden. Will definately come back in the spring ..The owners were delightful and loved chatting to them about the history of Bebeah.

One of the very best. Bebeah has a superb layout complimented by restrained plantings. Every turn offers not only a pleasant vista but an artistic detail that draws the eye - and the camera lens.

It was hard to imagine I was still in Australia! This is the most spectacular formal garden I've visited for some time. It's beautifully cared for, stunningly pretty & easy to spend hours admiring. A regular on my list from now on & one I highly recommend in such a special location...

We visited this garden last weekend and found it breathtaking. Truly beautiful, I would definitely recommend a visit! Has inspired me to make changes to my own garden in the hoe of replicating parts of it.
