Built in the 1930s by Dutch designer Paul Sorensen, the site features elaborate sandstone terraces, sweeping lawns, and European-style landscapes set against a backdrop of native bushland. The former home of Belgian-born industrialist Henri van de Velde, the property includes a Moderne-style house, 5 hectares (13 acres) of manicured gardens, and an outdoor theater, which hosts dramatic performances and an annual Shakespeare festival. Spend some time resting in the gardens, visit the gift shop, and drop by the site’s art gallery. Indulge yourself at the popular tea room, which serves coffee, herbal teas, local apple juice, and freshly baked cakes.

This place is amazing the garden look fantastic and great pathways around this pristine gardens. Unfortunately the garden weren’t in full bloom but all the bulbs and bushes were getting ready to flower 🌺 we’ll be back next time. I would definitely recommend this place to see how nice the volunteers have put so much work in the garden and surrounding areas.
Everglades consists of beautiful gardens and impressive architects and artworks. I'm especially impressed with the carved tree trunks. Maybe it’s better to visit the garden in spring or autumn so you can see more flowers. We didn't get to visit the tea house since it was closed. But overall it's worth the visit. Ticket purchase: $15 pp
