Surrounding the eastern side of the homestead is a patchwork of hedged gardens showcasing everything from a detailed knot garden, exquisite swimming pool and pavilion, sculptures demanding centre stage and even a friendly family of four emus Open Gardens:    

The gardens are open to the public on the first weekend of each month. Light refreshments are available but you are more than welcome to bring a picnic as there are many idyllic spots to claim for a lazy lunchtime.

E. spuppet@ozemail.com.au

We present a contemporary family puppet show at ImaginArta - the Australian Puppet Centre every Sunday at 11 am.
Join us at this Sunday for a a performance of "Things With Wings" by the Sydney Puppet Theatre.
“Things With Wings” is a lyrical, light-hearted story about Stumpy, a caterpillar who desperately wants to fly. He doesn't understand why he has no friends. The bird wants to eat him. The flowers won't talk to him. The fly is happy to be his friend but he wants Stumpy to join him in a feast of garbage, yuk!

Finally Stumpy falls into a deep sleep and dreams of things with wings; a dragon, a pterodactyl and a fairy. While he dreams, Stumpy has been undergoing a wonderful transformation.

"...worth its weight in aesthetic gold .... a little bit of magic ..."
