Lovingly planted, cared for and now looked after by scores of volunteers. A wonderful addition to the parks in Victoria.

“Living and beautiful history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

I spent a sunny afternoon strolling through the gardens. You can also take high tea there as well in the dining room. The garden's exude serenity. Along the path in a potting shed is a place to sit and read Mrs. Abkhazi's book, "A Curious Life" which will give you some additional background on the amazing story of the Abkhazi's. A lovely place to stroll and renew your spirit. A gardener's delight.

“Unique private garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

The story of the couple who lived here and built this garden is a wonderful, romantic love story and allows you to understand the garden as you view it. You can imagine them in the garden, working and planting the garden areas.
Find it , it is worth seeing.
