The Ard Choille Heritage Garden is both botanically and historically one of the best of the renowned Mt Macedon gardens, which as a group represent one of the most important and significant collections of Nineteenth Century gardens in Australia.

Ard Choille is unusual in the context of Mount Macedon gardens for its siting on the Northern, rather than the Southern slopes of Mt Macedon.

Ard Choille, was described by the National Trust of Victoria as one of the 12 outstanding gardens of Mt Macedon, and amongst these select gardens Ard Choille is especially noted as being of exceptional interest.

Ard Choille captures the feel of a gracious and inspirational 19th century garden and has taken full advantage of the unique cool climate with a huge array of exotic trees and shrubs. What you can expect to see in a stroll through its majesty are Birches, Beeches, Elms, Oaks, Firs, Lindens, Rowans, Dogwoods, Conifers and numerous tree ferns. There are also masses of rhododendrons, camellias, hydrangeas and thousands of daffodil bulbs .

The garden includes a rare 19th Century metal shade house, which is individually classified by the National Trust and is still used today.

Please note, bookings are essential.
