34. Leonie's Garden

170 Upper Stuart Rd, Eltham, 4673

This large expansive country garden of contrasts has been a constantly developing labour of love for 28 years. It features numerous interesting elements ranging from contemporary twists to traditional aspects.

Includes two wetland areas, a woodland garden, a large collection of rhododendrons and hostas, outdoor living areas, a land-art garden, summer house and a Japanese-themed garden, plus many metres of local stone walls built by Leonie. There are surprises around every corner! Enjoy this park-like garden, but please do not take videos or photos of this private garden.
