Open Gardens Victoria: Durrol
Durrol is a step back into history. It is a quintessential example of a hill station property, an integral component of the Mt. Macedon area, a precinct of hill station gardens of outstanding cultural significance.
Originally purchased in 1878, Durrol has a history of long ownership. The current family has owned the property for over 100 years.
The gardens date back to the early twentieth century and incorporate an enclosed garden by the noted garden designer Edna Walling.
Visitors can wander the rock-walled paths, mossy steps and lawns whilst taking in the magnificent array of mature trees including maples, oaks, lindens, beech, weeping elms and ash to name but a few.
This garden is opening in conjunction with The Garden Lovers’ Fair hosted by The Mount Macedon and District Horticultural Society. This will be held at Bolobek – 370 Mt. Macedon Road Macedon 3440. Buses will depart from the Bolobek carpark every 30 minutes to take visitors to this opening with the last bus leaving at 2.30pm.
