Samantha is a sensitively designed house and garden duo that featured on the ABC TV’s Dream Gardens program.

Designed by renowned landscape designer Fiona Brockhoff in 2016, this is a family holiday retreat featuring a carefully designed and sited swimming pool as it’s focal point. 

An organically shaped lawn has been styled for play surrounded by plantings of local indigenous species combined with site suited exotics. The plant combinations celebrate foliage, texture and colour. 

This garden demonstrates sustainable design that caters for family recreation and outside sitting and dining whilst respecting the unique low-lying site adjacent to the Portsea lagoon.

Michael McCoy, landscape designer and host of Dream Gardens will be promoting his book Dream Gardens on the Saturday only.

Please note: No Parking in Lagoon Crt. Parking nearby on Franklin Rd or Hotham Rd. Bring walking shoes.

Why not also visit garden designer, Fiona Brockhoff's garden - Karkalla opening in Sorrento over this same weekend.

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