Bring a picnic to enjoy in the autumn garden of Bringalbit.

Bringalbit is a historic property nestled in a gentle fold of landscape in the rolling granite hills of Sidonia, a picturesque drive not far from Kyneton.

This secluded 4-hectare garden has its roots literally in the 19th century. The rich heritage of mature conifers and oaks in an English park-like setting complete with an ornamental lake, forms a tranquil backdrop for the more recent and colourful plantings carefully carried out to scale.

A 60 metre Quince Walk puts on a beautiful display in autumn, while 19th century confers, willow and poplar thickets, Monterey pines and Osage trees add to the historic nature of this garden.

Bringalbit is a unique part of Australia’s rural history. The 1870′s stone homestead, woolshed, stables and outbuildings are a reminder of times past.

The Parkland and Gardens at Bringalbit are open on weekends from 10.00am – 5.00pm.

There is also a little outdoor kitchen where you can make a cup of tea, as well as some chairs and tables if you’d rather not sit on a picnic blanket.

$5 per adult, children free. Purchase on arrival.
