To the left of the house is an amazing little vegetable garden. Usually filled with cabbage, rhubarb, herbs, zucchini, carrots and tomatoes, but for now, there's a couple of large patches of gorgeous red tulips to marvel at.

To the east of the Art Gallery, at the back of the conifer walk, is a small loop trail lined with red camellia trees where the ground is carpeted with bright red camellia petals - quite stunning.

There's so much ground to cover in this huge garden, you would definitely need the whole day and some good shoes to venture out to the glades, lookout and grotto pool.

The lookout offering sweeping views of the Gordan Valley below forms part of the native bushland section of the garden, also featuring the same art-deco style balustrade.
