I was interested in the background of these stunning gardens and learned that a Danish man worked alongside the owner in landscaping the hillside with its wonderful views over the valley.

One of the locals recommended we go and take a picnic. We took our delicious cheese and picking plate and sat in a quiet spot overlooking the Jamison Valley. Lovely to be able to go somewhere away from all the crowds. It's very well maintained and easy to get to but out of the way enough that people may not.... More

Everglades is a hidden gem - the gardens are majestic and simply stunning. It is crazy to comprehend how quickly the garden became a reality, especially when looking at the complexity of the creation. The terraces gardens were a highlight, as well as the grotto. I loved visiting in autumn as the Japanese maples were their lovely red colour and... More

Everglades provided a lovely easter Sunday event for the kids. With a fairyland backdrop the kids enjoyed the little easter egg hunts and old fashion games. There was a coffee van, homemade cake stall, sausage sizzle and german food for sale. The kids could also make their own easter hat for the little easter hat parade. After the kids had... More

We used the Blue Bus to get to this out of the way home and gardens. . The home and gardens were developed in the 1930s by a wealthy industrialist and his nurseryman friend. The house is a fascinating art nouveau "sculpture."

Everglades is iconic and worth a stroll around. The gardens are beautiful and the views are lovely - get a nice taste of Australia's European heritage and bush in just an hour.

A man with a vision created his refuge in this peaceful mountain setting. A worthwhile place to visit and enjoy both the gardens and the Art Deco period house. Admission fee contribute to maintaining the property.
