Eryldene Historic House and Garden

Come and enjoy Eryldene's magical garden that was designed more than 100 years ago. Professor EG Waterhouse and Hardy Wilson teamed to create a garden planned as an extension to the house; divided into a series of connected outdoor rooms. Eryldene is now famous for its glorious camellias plus azaleas and other cottage garden plants and the original towering gums, jacarandas and maples.

Visitor Comments

Wonderful place the garden sure shows it is loved
Juliet - March 2017
Visited the Garden yesterday albeit on a rather cold day and camellia blooms not at their best but certainly a vast variety. House tour was VERY well presented with lots of personal Waterhouse information. Great Ikebana elegant & interesting arrangements throughout by the hand of Jenny Goodwin-Sogetsu School.
