Yackatoon Gardens is first on our list located in north eastern Victoria on Thompsons bend on the Goulburn River. The gardens are formal, in an English style, and comprise of sixteen acres planted around a free-form lake. Characterised by immaculately trimmed hedges, vast manicured lawns, and vibrant roses, the garden is accented with Renaissance-inspired statuary and centred around a pair of white marble fountains. Originally the site of a small dairy farm, today both the old dairy itself, and a neighbouring homestead dating from the early 1900s, have been lovingly restored, the original milking shed now home to the Old Dairy Tea Rooms & Cafe.
Boxlands Rose Garden is a masterpiece in the making. The idea concocted with family members to beautify an old ugly looking back paddock used for wood chopping and not much else.
After the plans were drawn, they were put into action. Many years of sculpting and growing has given Burramine its own little oasis.
Browse through over 200 Roses, spreading lawns and on-going landscaped garden beds.
Last year they had Silo Artist Sobrane do a Wall art this is a wonderful extra in the garden. Carol & Peter Lawless only open the garden a few times a year, we have been lucky to secure a time for our group to enjoy this beautiful garden.
