Lavender Hill

10am to 4pm, 27th and 28th April 2024

Enjoy glorious rural vistas in a relaxing setting of rolling lawns and established English park style gardens, all overlooking a lily-pond weir on Tin Hut Creek, which flows eventually into Googong Dam. Stroll through the large and picturesque 8 hectare block with its own dam, numerous advanced trees ablaze with autumn colour, scattered mature gums (some quite ancient), curving dry-stone walls, hedges and perennials. A cleared grazing area also features an enclosed orchard and veggie beds. Why not take advantage of this lovely property to enjoy a picnic to complete your trip in the country? Or combine it with a visit to nearby Woowoolahra open garden as well as scenic London Bridge Arch.

Supported charity: Burra Rural Fire Brigade.
