Sundays at Cruden Farm offer a relaxed and friendly experience. The property was left by Dame Elisabeth Murdoch for people to enjoy and consists of wondrous manicured gardens and peaceful walking areas, set amongst interesting bushland and lakes. The sights and scents at Cruden Farm constantly alter throughout the seasons and there are many plants and trees to be discovered
With Christmas nearly upon us, take some time out to enjoy Cruden Farm in a literal riot of colour. The delphiniums in particular will astonish you with their varied palette and amazing height – some of them grow to be as big as eight foot tall! The clever gardeners have constructed special hand-made spikes in various ingenious shapes to literally hold the blooms up when they are heavy in full flower. Come and take a tour or a gentle wander on your own, to see if you can discover the unique elongated metal structures that are hiding behind and beneath the vibrancy of the stately delphiniums, as well as the many salvias, phlox, alstroemeria, dahlias and roses.
On the third Sunday of every month Cruden Farm is open for you to take a tour or just come for the day and enjoy a leisurely stroll around the gardens and farm. You are welcome to bring a snack or lunch or you can purchase light refreshments from our pop up kitchen window. We don’t serve fancy meals but we do have freshly baked homemade goodies.
If you are a keen gardener, you will really enjoy doing a tour to learn more about this extraordinary place. At 10am on Sundays at Cruden Farm, a member of the gardening team leads people around the gardens explaining Dame Elisabeth’s vision in developing it over 80 years. Tours last for more than an hour.
The Sunday tour commences at 10am sharp and must be pre-booked.
