James Fairfax AC has always believed that Retford Park should be preserved for the enjoyment and benefit of future generations, particularly those of the local district. On 19th April 2016 and in fulfilment of his ambition, Mr. Fairfax gifted his historic Retford Park home to the National Trust of Australia (NSW). It was in August 2017 that the National Trust officially took control of the property. Having been in the caring hands of Mr Fairfax for over 50 years, the garden is a delight to wander through. As you venture up the driveway the grand Victorian Italianate homestead appears from a towering arboretum of a magnificent collection of evergreen and deciduous trees, some very rare and unique. 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.
Cost:
• Adults - $15

Feta Yoghurt and Fromage Frais

Saturday 6th of July
10am-4pm
95 Clemens Road, Woodlands, 2575
E. lucynias@hotmail.com

This 6hr hands-on workshop takes you through the steps of making one of the most delicious and versatile Greek cheeses. The distinctive sharp flavour of the cheese is achieved by adding an enzyme from the gut of goat or sheep to the cow’s milk, and although this cheese can be eaten straight away by the impatient, the complexity of it’s flavour develops slowly over a few months and becomes sophisticated and aromatic. It is a deceptively modest and simple cheese, and mastering this recipe will change your view of cooking with cheese forever.

The class takes place in the kitchen of our beautiful permaculture farm set amongst the rolling hills of the Southern Highlands. All equipment, ingredients and a yummy home-grown, home-made lunch provided, although you are advised to bring along an Esky or large waterproof box to take home your cheeses. Bookings essential.

This program demonstrates the intricate and abstruse style of the great JS, the expressive and eccentric one of Emmanuel, and the lyrically lovely one of Christian in sonatas for various combinations of strings, all played on period instruments.
