Bolobek

Having initially held the Garden Lovers’ Fair within the grounds of Mount Macedon Golf Club, the event soon outgrew the venue.

For the past three years, Mount Macedon & District Horticultural Society have been delighted to have been given a new location for its’ fair – the beautiful gardens of Bolobek.

The garden at Bolobek is considered by many to be one of the finest in Australia. It is certainly one of the most written about and photographed private gardens in this country, most recently featuring on Gardening Australia and Abode TVs Best Gardens Australia.

Bolobek is approximately 450 metres above sea level and in a normal year has rainfall of around 750 mm. The soil is grey loam on a clay base with a tendency towards acidity. The inner garden is approximately 2.5 hectares while the outer garden or ‘the Park’ covers a slightly larger area.
