Open Days at Stangate Garden


Discover Stangate Garden, one of the Hill’s best kept secrets. Bring along provisions for a picnic and spend the day enjoying the tranquil garden setting.
The garden was designed by Elsie Cornish, a renowned garden designer who landscaped with a unique sense of colour and composition. Home to one of Australia’s largest oak trees where people have picnicked for over a hundred years, the gardens were also recognised by the International Camellia Society in 2012 as an International Camellia Garden of Excellence.
While the camellias are in full bloom in early spring the garden has something magical to offer visitors anytime of the year.
