In 2020, our 10 acre garden of magnificent tulips and other spring flowers will create a spectacular display from 12 September to 11 October. Hundreds of blossom trees nestle between the flowers and provide a magic pathway to the cascading waterfall and watercourse with classical music wafting through the air in the hidden valley. Take the popular pathway past the rosemary field framed by unique blossom trees to our 70 metre high viewing platform for the perfect photo.
Our magnificent gardens are in the hidden valley adjacent to the Federal Hwy and only visible on entry. If coming from Canberra, continue on the Federal Highway past the overhead bridge for the Sutton, Queanbeyan, Gundaroo turn off, we are only just down the highway a little further on the left- just look for the large sign. The photos below give you an indication of our signage to look out for. If you have a GPS, please put in 20 Old Federal Highway, Sutton NSW, drive past the first set of double gates until a you get to our main entry.
