The creek flowing through Coldstream garden is the secret to the spectacular growth of the garden established just 30 years ago. The one-hectare garden wraps around the farmhouse, with a series of interconnecting lawns and pathways that led you from one area to the next. Mature oaks and silver birches provide height and a canopy to protect the large garden beds of established roses, camellias, and rhododendrons that together with mass plantings of daffodils, tulips and peonies put on a magnificent display in the spring. Between the canopy and under-planting you’ll see enticing views across the surrounding farmland to distant mountains. Coldstream creek is put to good use naturally filtering the waters of a large pond surrounded by extensive planting. The jetty is a great spot to feed the eels that come and visit. You’ll find plenty of restful spots to take in the grandeur of the garden.
