More from Ard Choille Heritage Garden

The garden of Ard Choille ( pronounced Arda Hillier ) both botanically and historically is one of the best of the renowned Mt Macedon gardens, which as a group represent one of the most important and significant collections of gardens in Australia.

Ard Choille captures the feel of a gracious and inspirational 19th century garden and has taken full advantage of the unique cool climate with a huge array of exotic trees and shrubs.

The garden includes a particularly fine and rare 19th Century metal shade house, which is individually classified by the National Trust and is still used today.
