The Gardens

Run, play or simply wander through the beautiful grounds along the river bank. You’ll love our nine acres of lawns and gardens.

We wanted to create an opportunity for today’s children to experience a tomato picked fresh as it explodes in your mouth, to know the sound of running barefoot through autumn leaves, to gather perfumes and smells to trigger special childhood memories. In 1996, except for three river gums, my Getaway Gardens were paddocks of weeds, not a flower or green lawn to be seen. Now there are gardens, vegetables, animals and the ambience and joy nature so freely gives to everyone who make the time to soak it in. There are paths to guide you to the gracious arms of two magnificent river gums that have shared their lives harmoniously together for over 200 years. What an example to us all.
