The magnificent gardens of the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch's Cruden Farm will be open to the public on 16 March from 10.00 am until 3.00pm to raise funds for Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute.

Cruden Farm is more than eighty years in the making when Keith Murdoch gave his 19-year-old bride, Elisabeth Greene, a small farm as a wedding present. It has been described as a place for people, plants and art works. It changes with the seasons.

A day full of activities offers something for people of all ages including live entertainment, expert gardening talks, vintage cars, free health checks from Baker IDI's heart and diabetes staff, face painting, market stalls and more.
