Bonython Estate Gardens is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm, closing 18 September 2020.  We have enjoyed welcoming all our visitors again.

Lining the stream banks are large pieces of granite and serpentine, found on the Estate, which have been used to channel the water flowing from the first to the second lake. On either side, massed planting of Camassias are exciting to see. Irises and day lilies replace the colour later in the season ensuring an extended and colourful season in our Valley Garden.


Through the valley, after the ‘Hot Garden’, threads another stream, where a large number of natural growing ferns flourish. The hellebores and dicksonias grow in harmony and we are increasing the variety of ferns in this area. The canopy of established trees and dappled shade provide a perfect growing position.
