Portsea and Sorrento gardens open for summer weekend

Four stunning coastal gardens will open on Saturday, February 15, and Sunday, February 16, with Open Gardens Victoria.

Shipway Lodge at Greenwood Ave, Sorrento, is a renowned historic property featuring original Sorrento limestone buildings, a rose-covered walled vegetable garden, deep mixed perennial borders and a giant Monterey cypress.

The nearby Point King Rd Garden at 17 Point King Rd, Sorrento, is a tranquil, beautifully refined Mediterranean-style garden with a formal design complementing the house.

Plant-lovers will relish the West End Garden at 57 Duffy St, Portsea, which celebrates the beachside environment. A grouping of 250-year-old moonah trees are the sculptural highlight of the garden.

Minutes away, the garden at 100 Back Beach Rd in Portsea is a clever transformation of a disused tennis court into a ‘folly’ garden, with raised garden beds, espaliered trees and central glasshouse.

Tickets to all four open gardens cost $30 and are available at each gate or through TryBooking. Tickets to individual gardens cost $8-10 each. Children under 18 are admitted free to all the gardens. Details:
