An evolving mixed garden with water features, a labyrinth and quirky pieces of art which will delight children. A garden of discovery with many gravel paths revealing diverse plantings including hedges of flower carpet roses, callistemons, conifers and photinias. There are three dams each of different designs and plantings: one flows over to a wetland; another has a terraced garden; there is also a large dry creek bed surrounded by natives. The gardens’ extensive park-like setting is enhanced by a backdrop of the Brindabellas.
Terroux garden notes2 are available.

Coming from Canberra on the Barton Highway, turn left into Wallaroo Road.
After 7.5 km turn right into Oakey Creek Road.
After 1.5kms turn right into Rochford Road (dirt road).
After 0.88 km ( after going down through a small gully) turn right through an open gateway (nos 88 and 90 on corner gatepost), come over two cattle grids), turn left though a brick entrance at number 88 and Terroux is on the top of the hill.
Allow about 15 minutes from when you turn into Wallaroo Road.
Drive slowly up the last part of the journey as the road is rough dirt. It looks like a dirt road but is actually the shared drive for the properties along the way after you turn into the gate.
Wallaroo Road is about 15 minutes from Civic. Terroux is about 30 minutes’ drive from Civic.
