Spring has well and truly sprung, and there’s (arguably) no place more picturesque at this time of year than Victoria’s Dandenong Ranges. SO lush!
This area is home to some of Victoria’s most breathtaking private gardens, and over two weekends in October, you can access them. Secret Gardens of the Dandenongs is a diverse program of full-day tours (including lunch!) in some of the area’s most beautiful gardens.
Do you recall our story on Beechmont, the magnificent, 10-acre garden belonging to Cherrie Miriklis-Pavlou, owner of iconic Melbourne florist Flowers Vasette? Well, you can see it for yourself on Friday 26th October, and be treated to an exclusive floral workshop with Cherrie and her team, too!
Saturday 27th October will see the gates of Melbourne’s famous Kenloch Estate open for a private tour. The Estate closed its doors to the public in 2006, and has been a private home ever since. Visitors will be treated to gourmet picnic here, amongst Kenloch’s historic buildings and gardens.
And on October 18th and 27th, you have the opportunity to visit our good mate Joost Bakker’s breathtaking property in Monbulk – (do you remember our ‘Melbourne Mornings’ video featuring Joost’s property? Truly idyllic!). Not to be missed!
Full day tours are priced between $190 – $240 per person, including lunch, transport, expert tour guides and various experiences. Each day finishes with wine and nibbles at Karwarra garden.
With only 50 places available each day, we recommend booking in asap to avoid disappointment !
