Our seven acres of stunning gardens, established over one hundred years ago, provide an evocative and romantic setting for wanderings, weddings, private events and many a photograph.

Behind the six hundred metres of Cypress hedge, lie a succession of terraced lawns, native, Italian and vegetable gardens, a croquet lawn, a former grass tennis court, a newly established Rose arbor and the oldest swimming pool in Victoria.

The gardens contain many rare plants and beautiful old world trees - such as the breathtaking English oakbelieved to be over 180 years old, majestically spanning the breadth of the courtyard; and the rambling beauty of the wisteria when in full bloom, elegantly tumbling over areas of the house and garden. 

Melba's Garden can only be accessed via a guided tour. Bookings are essential. Melba's Garden is closed on all Public Holidays.

When attending Melba's Garden Walk please note; The walk is a guided walking tour of Dame Nellie Melba’s garden. The tour takes approximately one hour. The walking route follows an unsealed & sometimes uneven pathway. It is not undercover and there are no toilets along the route.
