This garden, which surrounds an original 1862 house, was laid out to complement the house and the owners have carefully chosen plants to enhance this aspect.

Clontarf has wonderful old trees including gums and exotics like the beautiful cedar trees you'll see on this property. A newer Bunya Bunya pine is a lovely feature.

A striking aspect of Clontarf is how the garden seamlessly flows from one area to another passing water features, fountains and old paving.

The borrowed landscape of Forest Hall Garden next door adds significantly to the delight of this property.

There's also a walled vegetable, fruit and herb garden which is beside a children's play area.

Some of the proceeds from this opening will be donated to the Buda Historic House and Garden.

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