Situated on Dunville Loop Road, most of this garden was planted by Jim and Merran over the last 40 years including a 40 year old wattle at the entrance. It is the outlook (a surrounding landscape of paddocks, hills, and sandstone cliffs) as well as the garden, which establishes this as an Australian Country Garden. It features many native plants, including a patch of bush, with yellow box, Blakeley’s red gum and a grove of grey gums.
Some unique elements include a dry stone wall which was the inspiration for the Lizard Garden , and the “wedding rock” (three weddings have been held in this garden). There is a secret sunken paved garden with a still pond and peep hole and a water feature with ferns and gold fish A fully enclosed orchard with raised vegetable garden and chook run completes the productive area.
The house was built in 1938 entirely of concrete from the footings up.
There will be a plant stall both days.
