Cambrey Farm

10am to 4pm, 11th and 12th November 2023

A beautiful avenue of trees leads to Cambrey Farm, a 6 acre Pialligo farmlet established in the 1930s which has been in the owner’s family since 1954. Major tree plantings date from then, comprising majestic pin oaks, ash and liquidambars as well as mature gums. As an ex poultry farm, and now an alpaca farm, the grounds include a variety of farm buildings. The original cottage garden has been cultivated by three generations of gardeners with winding paths leading through a box hedge edged vegetable plot, pergolas, loggias and formal box hedge edged rose gardens to the Old Barn, built in the mid 1930s and recently restored to display its beautiful old timbers and ironwork and now re-purposed as an art gallery. Although designed as a low water use garden, there are two 10,000 litre rainwater tanks as well as bore water.

Rodney’s Nursery will provide vouchers giving garden visitors a 10 % discount on purchases made that weekend (with a couple of exclusions).

The Old Barn Gallery will have a sale and exhibition of artworks from:

  • Merryl’s Mosaics
  • NatureArt Lab photography
  • Calligraphic Vignettes by Narelle Jones
  • the Magic of Artistry Group
  • Bijoux – small treasures to delight from the Gumnuts Artists’ Collective

There will be a plant produce stall and bagged alpaca manure for sale. Afternoon teas will be available, as well as a sausage sizzle and delicious Thai food.

Cambrey Farm Garden Notes 2023 are available.

Follow the signs to parking in the Paddock.

Tickets for non-members can be booked through Eventbrite.
