Forest Glade Garden (Mount Macedon)




Forest Glade is one of Australia's finest private gardens, and has existed for nearly one hundred years.

The magnificent landscaped garden covers fourteen acres (5.6ha) and has four distinct sections:

•The large English section with its huge exotic trees and masses of colour
•The delightful Japanese section complete with bonsai house
•The beautiful woodland section displaying masses of shade-loving plants
•The cool fern gully

The features of the garden include a stunning blue bell patch and an impressive daffodil lawn during spring; a topiary garden, two aviaries, a magnificent laburnum arch, a peony walk highlighted with climbing roses, as well as numerous pergolas, ponds, fountains and statues.

When To Visit
Each spring the garden comes to its peak. The bursting of new leaves everywhere is highlighted with many thousands of tulips, azaleas, rhododendrons and all manner of exotic and rare plants.

At the height of summer, there are masses of glorious hydrangeas, a vast array of perrenials, lush green lawns and the freshness of the fern gully.

In autumn, the garden is resplendent in the glorious tonings of a myriad of maples, birches, beeches and other exotic trees amid the tree ferns along Willimigongon Creek.
