Discover Stangate Garden, one of the Hillís best kept secrets

This four-acre garden was designed by Elsie Cornish, a renowned garden designer who landscaped with a unique sense of colour and composition.

In 2012, the garden was recognised by the International Camellia Society as an International Camellia Garden of Excellence, at the time one of only 3 in Australia and only 30 worldwide. It is also the home of the Camellia Society Adelaide Hills Inc.

While the camellias are in full bloom in early spring, the garden has something magical to offer visitors any time of the year.

Come along with a comfy blanket and gourmet treats and find a spot under one of Australia's largest oak trees, where people have picnicked for over a hundred years!

Held from 10am to 2pm on the fourth Sunday of the month, this is a chance to surround yourselves with the beauty of nature. Pack your camera and a picnic and enjoy this mature ever-changing garden. In the case of inclement weather the Open Days will be cancelled, so please check on our website before heading for the hills!
