While you are at the Visitor Centre (the old Dardanup heritage listed Don Hewison school house) – whilst only a small garden – don’t forget to check out their amazing display of roses and the very informative orchid display with some orchids for sale too. Sadly the camellias are not flowering. Rose information books are available for your perusal – this lists every rose seen here at the centre. Also Ben Vreiling is our “in residence” horticulturist manning the Bunbury Orchid Society information stand here. Whilst not a rose expert he is knowledgeable about so much so do bring your gardening questions to Ben.
From here visit Gaelic Lodge – 1.4 km out of Dardanup; Mornington at 34 Tyrell Rd – 6kms out of Dardanup. Head east along Ferguson Road and turn left at Wellington Mill Rd to find Elliott Smith Studios showcasing a quirky artisty garden and glass studio, Peppermint Lane Lodge river and garden art stalls and further down to Kivulini – created a long time ago and showcasing some lovely areas to explore and enjoy. From there head over to Henty Road where you will find Ferguson Farmstay (9km from Dardanup) – Rosa’s amazing property with panoramas to Bunbury not to mention the 1000 roses blooming all around you.
