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

Thank you Julie and Craig for sharing your extraordinary garden with the public. It was so inspiring, and as we're fortunate enough to live just down the hill from this magnificent place it was great to see the range of plants that thrive in this location and how they have been used to great effect at Perennial Hill. We visited in January and look forward to returning next summer and during other seasons as well.

Moved to the Southern Highlands in June 2017, and was so fortunate to be told about this beautiful garden by a friend. So much to see, every corner of the garden is filled with thought and love by the owners. Julie and Craig, who are so proud to share their beautiful corner of the world. Very friendly and happy to share their hints and tips for a novice cold garden owner. I'm also keen to visit and experience this awesome garden as it would have a lot to offer during every season.

What an amazing drawcard to Mittagong, and Southern Highlands area. I stayed with a friend, but there are gardens all though the district to visit so stay for a weekend or longer! First visit in spring Oct 17, just visited summer Jan 18. From spring freshness to summer colour, an amazing garden for every garden lover, or just to stroll through and admire the beauty in every corner of the front, side and back gardens. Each is different, but all are filled with colour, form, and some rare plants too. Owners Craig and Julie are keen to share their plant knowledge and passion of all things gardening! Thanks for opening your beautiful garden and nuturing my passion too! See you in autumn 2018 to
