Country garden punctuated by unexpected artworks. The 5ha garden is structured around a series of distinct spaces – a neatly clipped expanse of lawn near the historic 1811 homestead, a formal rose garden and a pear orchard – linked together by wilder areas of indigenous plantings and winding pathways that encourage discovery. – Rene Slee for House and Leisure.
