Spring Open Days 2008

Bronte House, Sydney’s Premier Heritage Garden, will be open to the public on

perennial collections and its eclectic mix of traditional Victorian plantings and

exotica,  the magnificently restored garden at Bronte House will be in full Spring

colour and fragrance.  A particular highlight will be the display of 10,000

flowering yellow and orange clivea.

 

Myles Baldwin, head gardener and author of Period Gardens, Landscapes for

Houses with History, will be on hand throughout the weekend to answer

horticultural questions and to sign copies of his book.

displaying their art and poetry created under the guidance of author Libby

Hathorn and artist Pat Granville Smith under the title 100 Views of Bronte House.

At noon they will provide entertainment with a band performance. 

 

This mid-nineteenth century house and garden, is perched in and above the

parkland valley leading to Bronte Beach.  It offers an idyllic destination or resting

place for those doing the cliff walk from Bondi to Bronte.  BYO lunch or on

Sunday try a sausage from the barbeque.  Cakes, coffee and cold drinks will also

be available.
