Cruden Farm is one of Victoria’s most exciting green spaces. It is a place of public recreation, located less than an hour from Melbourne.

Visit Cruden Farm – a special place left by Dame Elisabeth Murdoch for the people to enjoy, that is now managed by a charitable trust.


Cruden Farm welcomes visitors Monday – Friday (excluding public holidays).  However, some days it is not possible for us to open the property; on occasions of high winds or other dangerous weather conditions, a decision to close may need to happen swiftly.

Please call 03 9789 1676 in advance of visiting.

Cruden Farm’s Response to Covid 19

Good news!  As of Monday 1st June 2020, Cruden Farm will again be open to the public.*  However, like much in the world, some things will be a little different so you will have to  pre-book and pre-pay before coming to do a Wander around the gardens during the week. The details about how to do that are in the TICKETING section of this web page.

* Assuming the current lock down restrictions are not altered…
