ABOUT ALLENDALE GARDENS

 

In 1980 Max Cross gave his wife Loraine a paddock, in fact she was allowed to choose any paddock from the whole of his dairy farm. - he says she chose the best one! It now covers an area of over 6 acres. Over the years they have worked together to create a place of beauty, peace and tranquillity. Be inspired here by the combination of flower and foliage with trees and conifer indigenous to countries from around the world planted as an art form to create a series of garden rooms. The beauty of the Birch Walk planted for the memory of and to celebrate an all too short life of a precious little son. and brother often moves visitors to tears - a place of healing. The new Rose Garden planted to celebrate twenty five years since the first trees were planted is a wonderful place to wander or be still. The beauty and perfume here is a feast for the spirit and the soul. A Mother Garden - a new project still under development which will have a heart shaped pond, waterfall and a summer house will be a special place to reflect and remember our Mums and Grandmums. A path from the gardens leads you into Allendale’s own Cool Temperate Rainforest of sixty five acres. Of special interest here growing under the filtered light of the tall canopy of blackwood and eucalyptus trees and towering tree fern glades are thirteen varieties of naturally growing fern including one rare endangered species hypolepus distans - the only substantial find in all of Australia. Allendale's privately owned and magnificent fern gladded walks will take you into another world where all stress disappears and leaves one with a feeling of closeness to God and nature. All flat easy walks in loops back into the gardens 10 or 30 minutes return.
