Garden Clubs

Gather a group of green thumbed friends and explore the Mornington Peninsula region as you wander through manicured grounds, elaborate hedge mazes and heritage parklands. Tackle the summertime rose maze at Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens. Discover bird-filled wetlands and gardens as you navigate Boneo Maze. Walk through the modern arid gardens at Cranbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens, or explore the cool rainforest, fern gully and terraces of Frankston Botanic Gardens. Take a stroll through The Briars Historic Park, Coolart Wetlands and Homestead, and Beleura House, built in 1863 and featuring a romantic Italian garden. Discover the regional heritage with heirloom flowers, fruit and vegetables at Heronswood, where you can sit in the magnificent garden to savour lunch cooked with produce fresh from the edible gardens. Some private gardens open their gates once or twice a year as part of the Australian Open Garden Scheme.   http://www.opengardensvictoria.org.au
