Open Garden at Ard Rudah, Mt Macedon

0472 997 880

4 - 5 Nov 2017

An opportunity to visit Ard Rudah, a significant heritage-listed garden originally designed by Baron Ferdinard von Muller in the 1870s. Many of the original plants remain highlights of the garden, including a Copper Beech that is over 30 meters tall and an enormous Linden tree. The garden features a sunken Italianate walled garden, a woodland of giant oaks and sycamores carpeted by bluebells, an enchanting creek which runs beneath moss-covered stone bridges through a fern gully, and a magnificent maple walk.

Spring is the optimal time to view the stunning colours of rhododendrons and azaleas set amongst sweeping lawns, clipped box hedges and mature rare plants and trees.

Make a day of it by bringing a picnic and relax is this stunning garden.
