The garden around the house was developed around 10 years ago and has been modified by the present owners. 

The house garden comprises a front garden of Indigenous and South African plants which attract honeyeaters. A grassed sitting area to the side and the back has beds of perennials, a large fountain and bird baths.  A viewing area overlooks the remainder of the garden which is still being developed. 

There is a substantial kitchen garden and fruit trees to the other side of the house.

The present owners had stone walls and stairs built to set off the plantings.  A grass path leads from the house garden to the remainder of the garden.

Perennials and grasses are planted in deep borders on either side of the path which has been carefully designed to take advantage of the view of the lower garden. To one side is a grove of Holm Oaks which have been inoculated with truffles – a truffière.  The lower garden is still being developed. The area borders three adjoining gardens.

The owners are planting trees in groves so that eventually the fence line will disappear and the lower area will become a lovely forest with spaces where people can sit and contemplate the surroundings. 

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