Open Garden at historic Mawallok

Mawallok, 3802 Geelong Road, Stockyard Hill, Victoria, 3373
27 - 28 Apr 2019

A rare opportunity to visit Mawallok – an historic Western District property with 2.5 hectare gardens designed by William Guilfoyle.

Wander the serpentine paths and sweeping lawns and take in the impressive vistas across the lake designed by Sir John Monash. Admire the six hole golf course designed by Major Alex Russell in 1924. A ha-ha wall divides the garden at the upper level surrounding the manor house from the golf course, allowing unimpeded views from the house to the lake.

Autumn is a special time to visit and enjoy the many mature trees throughout as the colour changes. There are several historically significant trees including Algerian and Gallipoli Oaks and a stunning Copper Beech. Later design additions include a grapevine-covered pergola, an avenue of pleached tilias and, more recently, a dry garden.

Make a day of your visit and enjoy a picnic on the extensive lawns with the many food stalls and other delights that will be part of the opening.

Extras will include refreshments including coffee, tea, cakes and lunches available to purchase, local wines and olive oil tastings and sales, plant sales and various artisan stalls, including Wired For Living.
