This is a lovely country garden nestled on 12 hectares bordered by Limestone Creek.
The garden has evolved over the last 25 years, with new areas continually added. The main garden at the front of the house features a cottage-style garden. To the north side of the house is a native garden with mass plantings of callistemons, banksias, grevilleas and wattles. An orchard and a kitchen garden keep the owners well-supplied with fruit and vegetables.
As you approach the house you travel along driveways lined by mature Candlebarks, Buxton Gums, Red Ironbarks and Red Gums. The Candlebarks in particular are special, as they were grown from seeds collected from a giant original Candlebark, which gave the property its name.
A major expansion in 2012 saw three ponds constructed below the main dam and a walkway across the dam to an arboretum.
