Details: Shady Brook is set on 14 acres. Approximately 6 are landscaped gardens and the balance is natural forest. The aspect is stunning. The garden is planted with many exotic maples, oaks, magnolias, dogwoods, birches, conifers and some (many rare) natives. Along the mountain edge and throughout the garden are hundreds of camellias, viburnums, rhododendrons, azaleas and thousands of bulbs, many mass planted in arrays of colour. Set on the Ovens River with natural bush and walking tracks as a backdrop, Shady Brook is only 14 years old but high rainfall, deep soils and a very special micro climate have accelerated plant growth and development into what appears to be a much more mature garden.
