Isabel MacKenzie, the current owner of Wombat Park, has spent the last two decades lovingly rejuvenating and maintaining this glorious two hectares of parkland. It is glorious; not only for the lovely Arts and Crafts house which is the centrepiece of the garden, but glorious for the extraordinary selection of trees. Each season delights the senses with constant changes to foliage colour and in autumn it is just beautiful. The dramatic framework of clipped hedges and towering evergreens provide form and function and sheltered garden rooms and hidden spaces are the essence of this magical old world garden.
This is a garden of towering conifers and deciduous trees, most planted between 80 and 160 years ago, and certainly worth a little trip into the Victorian countryside. Daylesford is only 1 hr 20 minutes drive from Melbourne. Open 10am-4pm both days. Entry $10 (U12 free). Plant sales from Lambley Nursery. Midland Highway Daylesford Melway reference X909:C9
