Explore the hidden gem of Stangate Garden, a well-kept secret nestled within the hills. Pack your picnic supplies and indulge in a leisurely day amidst the serene garden backdrop. The mastermind behind this landscape is Elsie Cornish, a celebrated garden designer renowned for her distinctive use of colors and arrangement. The grounds proudly boast one of Australia’s grandest oak trees, beneath whose branches people have enjoyed picnics for well over a century. Recognized as an International Camellia Garden of Excellence by the International Camellia Society in 2012, these gardens hold a special place. While spring sees the camellias burst into full bloom, the garden’s enchantment is available to visitors throughout the entire year.
