Opening Information

Saturday 21 April and Sunday 22 April 2018

10.00am - 4.30pm

Entry price $8 (U18 free). Students $5


As soon as you enter the gate at Hedgehogs you will encounter a beautiful Gordon Ford designed pond with granite surrounds and luxuriant plantings.

The garden has distinct areas which are all connected via winding gravel paths, so that each area comes into view.

This is a peaceful garden with a colour palette of soft mauve, blue and white – with splashes of other colours here and there – all of which will be enhanced by richer coloured flowering plants.

Notably, the gates and follies have been made by the owners, as has the pizza oven.

Other features of the garden include:

  • beautiful eucalypts which act as a backdrop to the garden in which over 30 fruit and nut trees are also incorporated in various enclosures and follies;
  • avocado and citrus in micro-climates and a raspberry house;
  • a very productive vegetable garden with ‘snake paths’;
  • a ha-ha wall at the rear of the house, with the lower area overlooking a small dam surrounded by yellow iris;
  • a grapevine walk under-planted with iris; and
  • various areas of massed plantings of daylilies, correas and roses.
