Avondale is an informal country garden where bulbs have increased and naturalised to create a colourful spring display.
First planted decades ago and requiring no summer water the bulbs are perfectly suited to the local climatic conditions and now each spring their foliage and flowers fill the garden and add pops of colour to the grassy slope of the adjoining paddock. The drifts of deep red, pink, orange and white sparaxis contrast with the softer more muted tones of hundreds of perfumed cream, gold, and purple freesias. Bluebells too have colonised and now appear as a sea of beautiful blue.
Small waterfalls link several rocky pools, the largest filled with a family of goldfish. Rustic seats crafted from logs and slate are placed to enjoy views of the garden as well as the drifts of flowering bulbs on the slope below and in the distance, rolling green hills and the rural landscape.
