Often called Margaret River’s Garden of Eden, trees bent over with fruit, sparkling fresh water lakes, and friendly animals, we are known the world over for sharing our garden paradise.
No words can describe the beauty of this property
|The Gardens of Merribrook Retreat are now recognized as one of the finest gardens in Margaret River and Australia’s South West. Acclaimed as one of Western Australia’s most beautiful natural gardens, Merribrook Retreat Margaret River proudly supports Australia’s Open Garden Scheme. We have been honoured to be selected 6 times to be part of this Scheme.
The landscaped entry to this 160 acre estate is a tribute to Rudolph Steiner’s philosophy of no straight lines in nature. Arrive to sensuous curves of dazzling yellow flowers, towering red gum trees and contented ducks waddling to the lake.A natural stone winter waterfall has been built to magnificently energize the Cowaramup Brook waters.
To visit this lush sanctuary if only for a moment in time is to experience heaven on earth. Or perhaps Australia’s Eden as so kindly written by recent guests from the UK. These lakeside gardens filled with flowers, fruit , bird life and huge gum trees continue to delight and nourish the soul.
Our Gardens have something for everyone, from a delicate peach blossom to the majestic woodland of cottonwood trees. Magnificent blocks of gneissic granite stand amongst massed plantings of violets, roses, Indian hawthorn and camellias.
