Secret Gardens of the Dandenong Ranges | Spring 2018
hero
Fill your senses with unforgettable sights, gourmet foods and the scent of exquisite Spring gardens. Beginning at Karwarra Australian Plant Garden each morning, you'll spend the day being chauffeured through the Dandenongs while our botanical guides and garden owners share with you their expertise and the stories behind each garden.

Operating for only four days per week for two weeks in Spring, no two days in the same week have the same program; join us for all four days in a single week and you will experience different gardens daily and enjoy lunch in four different locations.

Tours return to Karwarra at the end of each day to a glass of wine and hors-d'oeuvres before guests retire to their own accommodation or make their way home.

Garden highlights include:

Phillip Johnson, Olinda - Sustainable habitats that help to heal the earth and create spaces to completely unwind. For over 20 years, he's created ways in sustainable landscape design, working to exceed the demands of increasing water restrictions and climatic changes.

Bickleigh Vale Village, Mooroolbark - Located in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, this is the original 10-hectare village, built and landscaped by Edna Walling. Created in the 1920s, Walling lived at Bickleigh Vale for most of her life, naming it after the village in Devon, England, where she was raised.

Joost Bakker, Monbulk - A champion of sustainability, his garden is modern and well thought out. Joost will share his experiences as it evolved and continues to grow into the surrounding landscape.

The Underground House - An earth-sheltered home is nestled into the gentle slope of the landscape in this one-acre garden. Features of the garden include a connected system of ponds, streams and a waterfall; up to 100-year-old European trees, rare shrubs and a rooftop vegetable garden.

and Mont du Soleil, Kallista - This truly unique 15ha property, inspired by the buildings and grounds of Italy and France, sits high on a hill providing breathtaking views of the Yarra Valley & Warburton Ranges. The property faces due North and therefore enjoys a light and sunny aspect - hence the name "Mont du Soleil" (Mountain of the Sun).

There are only 50 places available each day. Don't miss out on securing your place today.
