Looking for a great weekend adventure? Garden lovers should head to the Garden at Broughton Hall in Gippsland and discover a garden for all seasons.
Designed and owned by David Musker and his partner Philip Hunter, The Garden at Broughton Hall is an enchanting estate nestled in the rolling hills of West Gippsland, just over one hour from Melbourne, Australia. Featuring 14 key areas united in a seamless flow, the garden is a horticultural wonder overlooking the man-made Tarago Reservoir.
Visitors can frolic with glamorous peacocks on the Upper Terrace, meditate in a haven of yellow and blue flowers in the Yellow Garden, picnic beneath an enormous lipstick maple in the Pink Garden, and reset with a book and a cup of tea in The Garden Room.
Musker’s Nursey onsite allows guests to take a piece of the garden home, bursting with a stunning selection of rare plants and home-made honey from the nine thriving beehives on the property.
The Gardens at Broughton Hall are in Jindivick in West Gippsland about 1 hour from Melbourne.
