Make the most of the Spring weather and enjoy the splendour of the Beaumont House garden on Sunday 24th September 2017 from 10am to 4pm.
This family-friendly day will see the stunning restored gardens of Beaumont House in full bloom, including the original olive grove.
In May of this year, more than 40 passionate volunteers helped to harvest olives from the Beaumont House heritage-listed olive grove for the first time in many decades. The oil has now been bottled and will be sold exclusively at the Open Garden Day. Proceeds will go to the upkeep of the garden.
Other Beaumont House garden highlights include the fragrant mauve wisteria which drapes the verandahs, while the flower beds are full of old-fashioned annuals and perennials. The rare shrub Wigandia will be also be smothered in purple blooms.
You can join a guided tour to learn more about the early history of these experimental gardens, plus there will also be a working blacksmith offering demonstrations, a selection of plants for sale and the Jazz Band of the SA Police performing live.
After visiting the garden you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a delightful Devonshire tea served on the shady veranda.
Entry at the gate is $8, concession and National Trust members $6, and those under 18 are free.
