Wylde Willow Garden 

Description: The delightful Abbots Creek meanders for a half kilometre through this 2.1ha country garden.  Inviting pathways follow the picturesque creek through a woodland of hundreds of rhododendrons, maples and cornus under-planted with shade-loving perennials.  Hundred-year-old willows stand guard filtering the sunlight.  Encompassing the house a cottage garden displays hundreds of old roses, many reaching tree tops before cascading downwards.  Perennials fill the beds adding monochromatic colours to complement the roses.

The garden welcomes children.

Open: Wylde Willow Garden is open from September to May by appointment.

Admission: $7.  Morning/afternoon tea are available by arrangement at $14 per person (includes garden visit).
