enjoy a tour of glenrock Gardens
Glenrock Gardens is an award winning country garden set in the high country of New England in the historic and pretty town of Tenterfield, NSW, Australia. It is the perfect venue for all events including weddings, workshops and garden tours and spectacular in all of the four well - defined seasons. The 10-acre gardens were voted the Best Australian Garden by the viewers and readers of Better Homes and Gardens in 2006. They are incorporated within a working farm and although the gardens are very much designed in the English style with dry stone rock walls throughout, they are also surrounded and interspersed with iconic Australian bushland. A succession of lakes divide the parkland, the northern prairie borders and woodland gardens with the terraces, croquet lawns, spring borders and double borders.
Private or public tours (guided are available) are welcome throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn, however the gardens are closed each winter for repairs and maintenance. A restroom is available but there is no cafe on site. Catering can be arranged if required for larger groups and BYO picnics are always fun! Due to the size of the garden, a duration of 1 to 2 hours is recommended. An electric 4 seater buggy is also available for use for the less mobile. If you need to recharge your electric vehicle, a charging station is available for use at the gardens.
Remember to bring an umbrella (if inclement weather), something warm in the late afternoons in Autumn, a hat (although there is plenty of shade) and preferably, closed -in shoes. Morning or afternoon tea, including a selection of home baked goodies (gluten free available) and tea/coffee, can also be provided (groups only) as well as lunch (gourmet sandwiches with gluten free/vegetarian options). You can book here!
