Open Gardens Victoria: Lewisham
Lewisham provides a wonderful welcome to spring! The house and garden are a total concept in the romantic image of Victorian Gothic.
Wander through this expansive 2.3-hectare garden and enjoy the abundance of blossoms – including weeping cherries, crabapples, camellias, azaleas – mature trees, many wearing their soft emerging foliage, and an abundance of bulbs.
Stylish bridges, which span the lakes and ponds, link the wide lawns which contain hedged garden beds, pergolas, arches, and various forms of garden art. A gazebo sits amongst various statues and urns.
Stroll along the meandering paths past the lakes, ponds and streams filled with bird life and flagged with Water Iris and other complementary plantings.
Enjoy the ducks, geese and guinea fowl which freely roam the property.
Lewisham is a great place to sit, wonder and admire the beauty of nature.
