This beautifully manicured private garden established in 1998, spans three acres and includes a Japanese Garden, Enchanted Forest, outdoor Dining Hall and two lakes with a cascading waterfall.
Antoinette, together with her grand-daughter Monica Barca have written a beautiful book about her garden called My Little Hidden Treasure. It has wonderful stories and insight into the design and development of Villa Verde Gardens along with other little, hidden surprises! The book is now available for purchase through our website for only $20 plus postage. Head over to our ONLINE STORE and buy your very own copy now!!
Villa Verde is honoured to give back to the community and has raised over $40,000 for various charities including Australian Breast Cancer Research, Children of Vietnam, Prostate Australia, Alzheimer’s Victoria Australia, Peter Mac Callum Cancer Centre and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre. They wish to thank their many patrons and sponsors for the generous contributions given throughout the years. They are truly grateful.
