The National Trust (ACT) and the ACT Monaro Riverina branch of the Australian Garden History Society invite you to visit Lambrigg, once the residence of William Farrer who made a major contribution to the wheat industry by developing a strain of wheat that was resistant to wheat rust. Lambrigg was the site where Farrer conducted his work on genetic selection for his wheat varieties.
William Farrer married Nina de Salis (from Cuppacumbalong) and their home was completed in 1894. It stands above the Murrumbidgee River and is surrounded by a beautiful garden which includes trees planted by the Farrers. AGHS prepared a plan of the garden in 1995 and during our you will have the opportunity to explore the garden and to see how it has changed in the nearly 30 years since then. Refreshments will be served in the garden.
Lambrigg is located north of Tharwa. Detailed directions will be provided on booking. There is plenty of parking but limited toilet facilities.
