  • The house level - 'The terraces' has cottage type gardens, a rhododendron and camellia walk and the vegetable garden.
  • The 2nd 'The Ladies Mile' - has long perennial beds roses [mostly David Austin] shrubs and trees- almost park like. The rest is the 'Proteacae Walk'.
  • 3rd 'The Pond Complex' - Has a series of ponds surrounded by garden as the main feature.
  • 4th 'The Last Furlong' is devoted to Natives that don't grow naturally in our area, some rare. Walk along that and come back up through the Hosta Walk. The garden is tranquil and romantic. Each level is surrounded by native bush giving continuity and bird life.
