Open Gardens – Mount Wilson

FSHD Global is proud to be hosting an open garden this April 29 & 30.

Enjoy the magical autumn colours of two supreme gardens at Mount Wilson – Yengo Sculpture Garden and Dennarque Estate. Both gardens were designed in the 19th century by Charles Moore, Director of the Sydney Botanical Gardens and include many rare specimens of trees in the idyllic village setting of Mount Wilson. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to view these private Estates.

Visitors will be able to experience these exquisite cold climate gardens through meandering paths around Asian-inspired ponds and wildlife spotting of quolls, bandicoots, wombats, lyrebirds and myriad other birds. Meandering trails of peace and contentment lead to reflection seats in secret nooks, past fine examples of Wollemi pine, succulents and a bonsai grove and to the escarpment edge overlooking vast vistas of wilderness. Shielded by stands of bamboo and enormous ferns, guests can collect fresh chestnuts and walnuts in season or view the Japanese teahouse. Yengo Sculpture Garden also boasts unique sculptures nestled in between beautifully arranged plants.
