Come explore the beautiful historically and horticulturally valuable grounds of Historic Ormiston House on this garden tour with Chris Brauns! Chris oversees the care of our gardens at Historic Ormiston House, and he has a wealth of more than 40 years’ experience in horticulture, plant breeding and plant nutrition. Chris was the head gardener at Government House for five years, he has worked in the research department at the University of Queensland, he owned a Plant Tissue Culture Laboratory, and developed hydroponics on a neighbourhood scale, which was presented on Gardening Australia.

The Historic Ormiston House gardens include both historically and horticulturally important plants that delight our visitors with both their beauty and significance. Enjoy your guided tour through the extensive grounds as Chris shares the secrets of this property with you. The gardens will be brought to life in a way you have never experienced as you hear about the vital importance of the gardens. Don’t miss this opportunity to share in the beauty and joy of the Historic Ormiston House Gardens – proof that heritage can be found not only in a museum or building, but in the surrounding landscape!

The Garden Tour and High Tea run simultaneously, so guests will need to choose between these two events – although either choice will be a wonderful afternoon!
