The future of Cruden Farm is not possible without the support of the general public — our visitors. Every-time you take a garden wander, enjoy a cup of tea from our occasional pop-up kitchen or eat delicious cake during a pre-booked morning tea,  it all helps to keep Cruden Farm alive for everyone to enjoy.

Garden Wander (recommencing 1 June 2020)

Cruden Farm is open throughout the week from Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays), 10am–4pm and visitors are welcome to meander around the magnificent property and enjoy the fruits of Dame Elisabeth’s 80 years of horticultural endeavour.  Tickets must be pre booked via the Mid-Week ticket link below or contact us via or (03) 9789 1676.   

Sundays at Cruden Farm (recommencing August 2020)

Once a month on a Sunday, Cruden Farm welcomes people to take a tour or just come for the day and have 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!  Please click on the image below to book your tickets which must be pre purchased. 

Managing COVID-19 at Cruden Farm

The health of our staff and guests has, and will always be, an absolute priority. The team has carefully considered all of the official government advice and will be strictly adhering to social distancing guidelines.  We’ll be relying on you too, to ensure that limited contact is made between staff and visitors. Only team members who are well and have not travelled to work on public transport will be working on the property to avoid possible contamination and Cruden Farm’s employees will exercise the highest possible standards of personal hygiene.  We will also keep a close eye on visitor numbers and monitor our processes daily on an ongoing basis and alter systems if required.
