Campaspe House
Campaspe Country House has a wonderful example of an early Edna Walling garden which changes character with the seasons.

  • Spring features the colours of rhododendrons, azaleas, crab apple trees, camellias,  jonquils, daffodils, Grandmother's bonnets and iris.
  • Autumn features the colours the region with 80 year old liquidambars and maples
  • Summer reveals the shades of greens a long established garden can produce.
  • Winter allows the large feature trees like red cedars and the rare Macedon oak (which stays evergreen) become the chief attraction.

In addition there is a kitchen garden featuring espaliered olive and pear trees and an excellent selection of herbs and vegetables.

Please note: Campaspe House is a privately owned Country House Hotel and restaurant. This means that the gardens are not generally accessible to the general public. However White Hat recommends that house guests and restaurant patrons should take at least some time to wander through these special gardens. Restaurant bookings are essential and you can find details at the Campaspe House website. More info >>

National Rhododendron Garden
At The National Rhododendron Gardens you will find brilliantly coloured blooms of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, cherries and daffodils. Seasonal changes ensure the gardens are a delight all year around. When not in bloom, you can still soak in the beauty of rich bark textures, seed capsules, foliage shapes and beautiful fragrance as you stroll through the grounds. National Rhododendron Garden
