Mulgrave Gardens occupies a few acres of the family’s larger private property. The foundation trees of the garden were the existing rambutan trees, which were planted by the Squire family over a decade ago.
From there, this Balinese inspired tropical garden has grown and evolved to incorporate several unique zones and spaces, connected by formal and informal pathways. It’s a garden of abundant, year-round colour, thanks to the foliage and flowering plants.
A bright palette of 50 shades of green, bursting with blasts of orange, yellow, pink, red and purple flowers. Bright cordylines, crotons and several species of variegated plants add contrasting hues, as do the bromeliads and orchids.
Mulgrave Gardens is now an established garden, several years old. It opens its Balinese timber gates to events for the first time in 2019. Be one of the first to explore and enjoy this wonderful space and watch it evolve over time, with the seasons and ongoing additions of plants and features.
Balinese features appear throughout the garden, perhaps most prominently at the ornate, carved wooden entry and exit gates. They add an exotic touch, to what is already a vibrant garden.
The garden’s central feature is the traditional Balinese Hut, complete with thatched roof and raised timber decking.
Other Balinese and oriental features can be found strategically placed throughout the garden. These include intricate timber panels and mirrors, carvings, stone statues, water pots, ornate door knocks and more. These carefully curated features complement the natural beauty and create a mystical, enchanted atmosphere.
Mulgrave Gardens is located on Little Mulgrave Road, which is a turn off just before or after the bridge by the Mountain View Pub (depending on your direction of travel). We look forward to welcoming you, to our gardens, for your celebration.
