Open Gardens Australia

Australia
Open Gardens Australia began life as Victoria’s Gardens Scheme in 1987, broadening to become a national program in 2000. The gardens are not of a particular type, but represent rural and urban, large and small, and an enormous range of garden type in differing climates and environments across Australia.

Cruden Farm, VIC  

Cruden Farm, VIC

:

Cruden Farm is an eight-hectare property established by the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch more than 80 years ago. She engaged, among others, renowned landscape designer Edna Walling. It is a founding garden in the Open Gardens program.

Niwajiri, SA  

Niwajiri, SA

:

Steve Hailstone began developing Niwajiri in the Adelaide Hills in the late 1980s. Displaying European, Japanese and Australian influences, Niwajiri has been meticulously planned and planted to reflect the values of its owner-designer.

Mendel Garden, WA  

Mendel Garden, WA

:

Award-winning landscape designer Janine Mendel developed the 450-squaremetre Mendel Garden. Reflecting her philosophy that the house must appear to take root in the land, the garden fosters a permeable boundary with the built form.

Walcott Garden, ACT  

Walcott Garden, ACT

:

Walcott Garden was first developed in 1926 and was redesigned by Helen Cohen in 2003. This water-wise garden reflects the vision of its owners and focuses on natives sourced from all over Australia, with some plant species from New Zealand.

Wychwood, TAS  

Wychwood, TAS

:

Wychwood is a cold-climate garden of tranquility and beauty, set among the rolling hills near Mole Creek, Tasmania. Its focal point is a seven-ring classical labyrinth, created through careful grass mowing, with a stone column situated at its centre.
