Ard Choille Heritage Garden

80 Turner Ave, Mount Macedon VIC 3441, Australia

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 & rare 19th Century metal shade house, which is individually classified by the National Trust and is still used today.

Open throughout Spring and Autumn.
Early in  Spring you will enjoy fields of daffodils.  Mid to late Spring  you have to love the Rhododendrons and Camellias.  Autumn  shows a magnificent display of autumnal colours.

Groups through out the year by arrangement. Check website for events and workshops.
