(30.04.2017) Mount Macedon: Forest Glade Gardens
Forest Glade is a historic private garden that is acknowledged as one of the most beautiful in Australia. It embraces a mixture of landscaping styles taking inspiration from English, Italian and woodland traditions. There are four distinct themes, including the large English section with its huge exotic trees, the Japanese section complete with bonsai house, the woodland area displaying masses of shade-loving plants and the cool fern gully.
There are no bad times to visit Forest Glade Gardens - in autumn the various maples are in a riot of colour, while in spring the rhododendrons, azaleas and peonies are a sight to see. Both summer and winter bring their own very special treats for garden lovers.
