When the owners purchased Wingspread 10 years ago this two-hectare property consisted of an original cottage surrounded by paddocks of pasture.
A new home constructed eight years ago, featured in Grand Designs Australia magazine, marked the start of the planning and planting of the garden you'll find today. It keeps the best of the original plantings from 60 years ago around the cottage and incorporates them into today's garden of sweeping lawns and layered beds.
The planting features rhododendrons, camellias, maples, tulip trees and many other cool climate plants. Approaching via a tree-lined driveway you'll find a parterre, kitchen garden, formal avenue, pool and tennis court with a great view as the backdrop.
There will be a display of cars from the Mercedes Benz Club of Victoria, wine tastings and sales by Steels Gate Vineyard and Box Grove Vineyard and coffee and treats by Oscar the Vintage Coffee Van on both days.
Also, on the Sunday there will be a satellite event of the Yarra Valley Opera Festival at approx 1.00pm.
This opening is in support of the Leukemia Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
