This garden is testament to the owners’ knowledge and passion for Australian plants, and is filled with a huge range of Australian plants from every state. The garden evokes the feel of the bush in some parts; in others, formal elegance. Every inch of ground has been developed whether for floral display or for productive food growing. And every plant is labelled!

A long driveway welcomes visitors to the house – its length filled with beds full of colourful plants including correas, eremophilas, hibbertias, dampieras and several large signature Brachychiton rupestris trees.

The owners have a special love of correas, grevilleas and leschenaultias and there is an amazing variety throughout the garden. While the front garden feels a little like walking through the bush along winding paths, closer to the house the garden has a more formal feel with a fernery and many kinds of zygocacti.

The rear garden features a huge covered orchard where peach, figs, apple, plums and apricots thrive, including a macadamia and loquat. There is also a vine-covered colonnaded walkway, a private courtyard garden, a propagating area and hothouse.
