This is the best garden I’ve ever seen so far here down under, and it’s huge with an undulating landscape.
According to their website, Mayfield Garden is one of the largest privately owned cool climate gardens in the world. It is nestled within a 5000 acre working farm near Oberon in the Central West Tablelands of New South Wales. From its humble beginning, it started modestly in scale but as tends to happen with gardens, it grew…and grew…and grew. Now, it’s the most sought after garden to visit.
Still very much a work in progress, there is nonetheless a maze, an oak forest, a walled potager, an 80 metre cascade that tumbles down the hillside, extensive parterre gardens. Oh, I love this cascading water feature and it’s one of the main features that attract attention of visitors. Another one that captured my interest is the parterre gardens; they are awesome and enchanted in style. They’re the finest for photography subjects and that is the reason I believe heaps of people flock into them snapping and making them as background to their photos.
All of these make the garden a much favoured delicacy to the appetite of garden lovers like me. It took us the whole day touring the garden and photographing every part of it, but every part seems very attractive to snap on. Actually, a walk around the whole garden will take around three hours.
When we visited the place, there was an on-going development, another water feature I suppose was being started and that this would surely add another glory for star to Mayfield Gardens. Well, perhaps by this time, it’s already been completed. I am looking for another chance to return and visit the place again, and perhaps next year will possibly be good and worth for it. It’s a great and awesome place to be.
