Sitting on a bed of heavy clay ‘Caelum’ at Macedon was lovingly nurtured by former owner, Margaret Pisaro, before being passed onto the current owners. They have continued to embrace and enhance the garden.

Enjoy the sunken garden, caged vegetable garden, mature fruit trees and meandering paths – flanked by perennial beds and mature trees – often ducking off into secret hidden corners. Discover rare and unusual plants and trees influenced by Stephen Ryan and Dicksonia Rare Plants Nursery that thrive in the micro climates of the garden.

Wander past the large stone fountain after passing through the Echium walk.  

Salvia beds will be in full bloom as well as other perennial plantings and shrubs tucked amongst the canopy of rare and unusual maples.

Visitors on Sunday will be able to tap into the expertise of plantswoman – Wendy Forrest – who will be conducting tours of the garden from 10:30 am.

Caelum is located on the lands of the Wurundjeri people. Open Gardens Victoria wish to acknowledge the Traditional custodians of this land and we pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
