Private Gardens of the Monaro - 24 October, 12 November, 22 November
Each garden is distinctly different; ”Shirley” recently renovated under the guidance of renowned garden designer Paul Bangay and featuring in his latest book “Country Gardens”; “Hazeldean”, one of Australia's most prominent Merino Sheep and Angus Cattle Studs with a heritage-listed homestead redesigned by distinguished architect Professor Leslie Wilkinson in the 1930’s; and “Curry Flat” built in 1880 still with the original façade and mostly unaltered with the original garden design intact. All have an interesting history, and are the result of a wish to create a beautiful space and a welcome retreat from the often harsh reality of life on the land.
