The garden of Broughton Hall is spectacular and is located near the lovely village of Jindivick, West Gippsland. This garden is the labour of love of David & Phillip who have created the most amazing garden to experience during every season.
The garden began life in 1996 and like all country gardens it has taken many years to develop to its present stage. With a backdrop of the Tarago Reservoir, a terraced garden of 4 acres cascades down the slope towards the water with an amazing variety of plants which fill the banks with dramatic foliage including the formal rose beds. This is a garden to spend time in, slowly moving from one area to another, sitting in every seat, observing, contemplating and relaxing, feeling the integrity with which it was created and appreciating the beauty. David & Phillip encourage visitors to bring a picnic & really spend some time enjoying this garden from every angle.
A Garden For Every Season
The Garden at Broughton Hall are stunning in early spring, September, when the bulbs start popping up and around the time of cherry blossom in October but it is around Melbourne cup weekend when the roses are in full bloom, lasting through to December. In autumn the bulbs feature again, with autumn roses and the autumn colour, of course, all with the backdrop of tightly clipped hedges and autumn leaves falling everywhere. Winter with the mist of the water, bare branches, and exposed hedging is a very beautiful time as well, it is a garden for all seasons.
Rare Plant Nursery & Man Cave
