After a lazy breakfast at one of the many wonderful cafes in town (or a relaxing massage at Maiaveda), pick up a curated Autumn Picnic Hamper from Piper Street Food Co. and head to the hills.
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 conifers, willow and poplar thickets, Monterey pines and Osage trees add to the historic nature of this garden. Peacocks and guinea fowl happily roam the gardens around the homestead.
Bringalbit is a unique part of Australia’s rural history and a beautiful garden for a stroll and picnic.
