Fellowship Activity – Visit to Alowyn Gardens

October 8, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:30 pm

Alowyn Gardens – Yarra Valley – Melbourne

Alowyn Garden is designed along strong symmetrical lines that become blurred by the softness of the spaces and the grace of the trees, within an area of approximately 4 acres. There are 5 clearly defined areas within the gardens, a perennial border, designed to display colour from Spring to Autumn, a silver birch forest, an edible garden of generous proportions, a parterre garden and a number of display gardens. The formal parterre garden is built along 17th century design principles, leads you through to a series of smaller courtyards and display gardens. Through all these area runs a wisteria and rose covered archway 100m long with a sunken garden and a classical fountain as a centre piece.

ABC Gardener of the Year Award

Alowyn Gardens was honoured to be awarded the National ABC Gardener of the Year in 2008.  John Patrick said of the garden, “This is a garden that works for me on many levels, I really admire the way in which it has been meticulously planned. It has an internal focus with the fountain, but it still borrows the landscape around as a setting.
