26th & 27th October. 10am – 4pm.
The Granville garden is a tropical delight, with meandering pathways wandering through the different levels past a spacious Balinese hut, with statues and bird baths adding to the green tropical feel. There is so much to see and delight in, including ponds, and a stream.
There are more than 100 mature palm trees and glorious mature tree fern canopies can be appreciated from the 4 metre high deck which overlooks the jungle. Ferns and ground covers add to the green jungle look. Colour is mainly derived from the foliage of Cordylines, Dracenas, Calatheas and grasses. Orchids, Bromeliads, Heliconias, Clivias and Begonias, Hibiscus and Anthuriums add an extra splash of colour when in bloom.
A productive vegetable and fruit garden includes Mangoes, Longan, Lemon, Lime, Bananas, Lychee, Avocado, Custard apple, Water apple, Guava and Chiku fruit trees and a ‘Chook Mahal’.
Wildlife abounds, Ponds with fish, visiting wild ducks, frogs as well as a stream and waterfall contribute to the ambience and calming influence of the garden. The fire pit is an enticing place to sit and watch native birds.
Located south of the house is an emerging Australian native garden. Spring visitors can expect to see a riot of everlastings, kangaroo paws and Grevillias and successfully transplanted Grass Trees.
