There is nothing more enjoyable than watching a garden change with each season here in Melbourne. Cruden Farm is a beautiful country garden located in Langwarrin on 133 acres of land. I visited Cruden Farm at the beginning of Spring. Come and take a look around.
This was my first visit to Cruden Farm and I found a beautiful white weatherboard home surrounded by a stunning and well loved garden, with an ornamental lake and lush green rolling paddocks. The much loved home and garden of Dame Elisabeth Murdoch.
This property was gifted to Dame Elisabeth Murdoch by her husband in 1928 as a wedding present. Dame Elisabeth was a renowned community leader, charity worker, and philanthropist. You can read more about Dame Elisabeth over here at Cruden Farm.
The Gardens have been attended to by Gardener, Michael Morrison for many years. Mr. Morrison and Dame Elisabeth would often circumnavigate the gardens in Dame Elisabeth’s electric buggy which is still parked in the stables.
Summer is the time to visit the walled garden, which is just through this archway above. The walled garden is filled with two large perennial borders which are filled with a colourful display of delphiniums, phlox, salvias, daisies and dahlias.
Cruden Farm is also a place where you can celebrate a Wedding, with the many spectacular sites for a ceremony in the gardens. It is also a host venue for many charitable and community based organisations.
The Gardens are open privately or with a guided tour, you can view their dates over on the Cruden Farm website.
It was so nice to see this property for the first time in Spring and take a stroll around the home and gardens of Cruden Farm. There are many garden benches to sit on throught out the estate and take in your surroundings. I loved this spot here under the pink blossom tree. It was so peaceful.
Cruden Farm is open this weekend on Sunday for a walk around this beautiful country garden estate. Do you have a favourite garden you love to visit?
