This garden will open with its neighbor, with tickets at $12 for both - sorry, no concessions.

The garden will open under covid guidelines. We encourage you to bring cash as EFTPOS facilities are not always available. 


To visit Jenny and Ted Zeitz' densely-planted Adelaide Hills garden on a summer’s day is to walk into an oasis of cool green and an abundance of flowers. Tall trees planted 44 years ago give shade to beds where wind flowers mingle with hydrangeas, tree ferns, fuchsias, gardenias and bromeliads.  However, it is the hydrangeas that are the show stoppers - they are spectacular!

The property slopes downwards, and from the outdoor dining area behind the house, there are lovely views through the leafy tree tops and out over the lush green garden dotted with the soft pinks and blues of the hydrangeas. Winding paths weave through the foliage and the big old tree trunks, to where a spring-fed creek is crossed by several small bridges.

Everywhere, huge hydrangea bushes are smothered with flowers, creating an unforgettable display amongst an assortment of shade loving plants that flourish in the cool protected microclimate and dappled light that filters through the lofty trees.

The garden has something to offer in all seasons - in winter and early spring azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons and bulbs maintain the show of colour and the many deciduous trees put on a beautiful display in autumn.

Fruit trees are planted wherever there is a sunny spot, and there is a small vegetable garden. The swimming pool is surrounded by palms which shade the sparkling water and there is a tennis half-court.

A cool, tranquil Hills garden filled with foliage and flowers – very inviting on a hot day!


Extra activities: morning and afternoon teas; sausage sizzle; plant sales.

Size: 0.75 acres; 0.3ha.

Please note: the property has a swimming pool and creek. It is not suitable for wheelchairs. 

The chosen charity is: The Hut.
