Campaspe Country House has a wonderful example of an early
Walling garden which changes character with the seasons.
- Spring features the colours of
azaleas, crab apple trees,
daffodils, Grandmother's bonnets and
- Autumn features the colours the region with 80 year old liquidambars
- Summer reveals the shades of greens a long established garden can
- Winter allows the large feature trees like red cedars and the rare Macedon oak
(which stays evergreen) become the chief attraction.
In addition there is a kitchen garden featuring espaliered olive and pear
trees and an excellent selection of herbs and vegetables.
Please note: Campaspe House is a privately owned Country House Hotel and restaurant. This
means that the gardens are not generally accessible to the general public.
However White Hat recommends that house guests and restaurant patrons should
take at least some time to wander through these special gardens. Restaurant
bookings are essential and you can find details at the
Campaspe House website. More info >>
