Eryldene September Open Weekend

Regarded as the home of the camellia in Australia, visit the stunning Eryldene's twentieth century house and garden in the North Shore Sydney suburb of Gordon.

Memories from grandfather Vickery’s garden in Waverley, from Colonial cottage gardens and from gardens visited during a European sabbatical in 1906 – 1908 all inspired Professor Waterhouse’s design for his garden at Eryldene. Tease out the subtleties of the landscape as you stroll through the tranquilly of his garden ‘rooms’. Admire his very personal collection of camellias and azaleas, now at the height of their flowering season.

Book a granny-chic Sunday Afternoon Tea, inspired by those served by Mrs Waterhouse.
