Private Gardens of Victoria
Join writer and landscape photographer Trisha Dixon for an exploration of a selection of superb private, heritage and botanic gardens in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula.
Wander through the leafy suburb of Toorak and visit a special garden belonging to a prominent landscape designer. Then, enjoy the rare opportunity to visit Bickleigh Vale Village gardens in Mooroolbark, originally constructed by renowned landscape designer Edna Walling in the 1920s, before soaking up the tranquil atmosphere of Cruden Farm, the botanic legacy of the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch.
Also visit meticulously manicured private gardens along the Mornington Peninsula’s ‘Millionaire’s Mile’ and take the ferry from Sorrento to Queenscliff to visit the Coriyule homestead, an award-winning heritage estate.
