THINGS TO SEE & DO : GARDENS


Aranbark

Hosts: Lynette & Richard Purvis
Aranbark is a sheep farm situated in the picturesque, undulating red-gum country, north of Cavendish with spectacular easterly views of the Grampians National Park. The semi-formal English style garden is about one acre in size, featuring sweeping lawns and generous garden borders brimming with roses, perennials and shrubs. Careful planning has ensured that the surrounding views are captured in the garden.
A meandering birch and maple walk under-planted with a mass of bulbs is a more recent and delightful addition. Enjoy this family friendly garden with many delights for all.

Crombie Garden

Crombie is set in a magnificent red gum valley, Victoria Valley surrounded by the Grampians National Park.
The garden is a pot pourri of natives and exotics, the combination of colour shapes and textures complement both the seasons and the site. Bird lovers will be delighted at the plantings and water features that ensure many species call this garden home. Flowers are an added bonus and getting lost at Crombie you will find many surprises. The garden continues to develop to create a balance in this unique environment.
The bird calls during the day and the frog calls at night make us feel contented and that we have a balance with the environment. We look forward to sharing the garden with you.

Hamilton Botanic Gardens

The site for the gardens was set aside in 1853 and first planted out in 1870, making the gardens amongst the earliest provincial botanic gardens set aside in Australia.
From 1881 the Council at the time employed William Guilfoyle, curator of the Melbourne Botanic Gardens, to draw up plans and design the layout of the gardens. His design approach was to introduce sweeping lawns, curved paths, lakes and islands, rockeries with cacti and succulents, colourful plants and contrasting foliage into the Hamilton Botanic Gardens. Guilfoyle’s first list of sketch plans and suggested plantings, now more than 100 years old, are held in the Hamilton Art Gallery. His creative ability has created a unique landscape style and his gardens today are considered a vital part of Victoria’s heritage.
Set in four hectares, the Gardens as a complete entity were classified by the National Trust of Victoria in 1990 and contain eight tree species listed in the Register of Significant Trees. The Gardens have areas of scientific interest, fountains, decorative fences and gates, animal and bird enclosures and are built in a manner of merging surrounding streetscapes to give pleasing vistas both inwards and outwards.

Hamilton Institute of Rural Learning

The eye-catching, environmentally sensitive building at HIRL was designed by students from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Aimed at providing new skills to the long-term unemployed, the building was funded by community employment programmes and completed in 1986. The mud-brick building with high soaring galvanized iron roof supported by massive re-claimed power poles is a sight to see. Upon entering the complex, interest is maintained by the reclaimed slate and redgum parquetry flooring inlaid with Eastern Barred Bandicoot designs. Featured in the HIRL grounds are several organic vegetable and flower gardens.
