The purpose of the gardens at “Alowyn” is to provide an informative and educational experience for anyone interested not only in gardening, but also the enjoyment of a beautiful garden. It has been designed with shade and comfort in mind. Plant names are on view to educate and inform visitors about the gardens.
Work first started at Alowyn Gardens in 1997 with extensive clearing and cleaning up of the weed and blackberry infested paddocks.
A soil management plan began in earnest to revitalise the soil which had been depleted of goodness over 20 years as a trotting stud. The first tree was planted in 1999.
Now, Alowyn Gardens has become a Yarra Valley premier Garden Wedding venue. Have your ceremony in at Alowyn Gardens and celebrate with your family and friends in the Maple Courtyard. Seasonal gardens that are changing all the time provide the most beautiful setting for your wedding.
