Visitor Comments

Worked a visit to this gem of a garden into a trip to Bathurst. Perennial border (even in the rain) was lovely and equalled what I've seen overseas... and I've never seen such a lovely lot of dahlias. The setting is just lovely. Watch for next time it's open. Margaret March 2016

Well worth the trip. The perennial border is said to peak in March but was just delightful on 31 December. Visit in summer for lilies, hydrangeas, flowering dogwood, a magnificent smoke bush and much more...

I loved this pretty garden! Set in serene location with sweeping garden beds & distant views are enough until you get to one of the best herbaceous borders you'll ever see with magnify own canna's, dahlias & much more. I also bought some great quality plants at a reasonable price. The owner was very knowledgable on matters of horticulture. I highly recommend this beautiful garden...

A 3 hour drive from Sydney and this garden is well worth it. An oasis in the countryside. Sarah's border equaled many I have seen in England.
