Vsit to historic Mudgee Garden, Heaton Lodge, with the McMaster's Beach Garden Club

As part of a tour of Mudgee district gardens, I arranged for this club to inspect the house and gardens of the historic Loneragan family property Heaton Lodge through the generosity of owner Liz Loneragan. Spring and autumn are prime times to visit the grounds which were enhanced by noted landscaper Paul Sorensen in the 1930s and 1950s.

On their way into the grounds, the group enjoyed interpeting the free sculpture of the base of an elm tree, damaged some years ago by lightening and later modified by Mudgee artist Nigel White.
