Cruden Farm

60 Cranbourne-Frankston Road, Langwarrin, Victoria, 3910

More than eighty years in the making and the heart of a working farm, the garden at Cruden Farm is a small piece of country set amid dense suburbia. It feels as if it will endure forever. Strong, healthy trees of all ages and hues form its backbone and its character. Grass adds texture – emerald lawns, rough-cut swathes, paddocks bleached in the sun. Water in lakes and pools gives depth, dimension and sparkle. Exuberant flowering shrubs and perennials produce months of vibrant colour.

The property was left by Dame Elisabeth Murdoch for people to enjoy and consists of wondrous manicured gardens and peaceful walking areas, set amongst interesting bushland around the lake and the lagoon. The sights and scents at Cruden Farm alter dramatically throughout the seasons and there are many rare and old plants and trees to be discovered.

Cruden is open for garden wanders between 10.00am – 4.00 pm Monday – Thursday (excluding public holidays) and once a month for an Open Day. Open days offer a very relaxed and friendly Sunday experience where you can pre-book a detailed garden tour or just bring a picnic and wander through Cruden Farm.
