10am to 4pm, 10th and 11th November 2018

Both the heritage listed Cuppacumbalong House and the surrounding gardens will be opened to the public. The new owners are renovating the terraced gardens, in keeping with early 20th Century styles. The grounds, suitable for picnics, are framed by large shade trees and face onto the Murrumbidgee River, where a mown path leads to a small historic cemetery. Refreshments are available. Visitors are encouraged to bring mugs so as to reduce waste.

The owners now provide accommodation, an events venue and teaching in crafts. The open gardens weekend will feature black-smithing demonstrations on both days and one day knife-making courses. Courses may be booked through Tharwa Valley Forge. A Bush to Beach Florals course on Saturday may also be booked.

Garden notes are available.



There are approx. 2 acres of garden.
