Culture and heritage

In 1958 George Tindale, a research scientist with the Victorian Department of Agriculture, purchased the property and began to develop the existing garden. With his wife, he created the plantings you see in the garden today. Mrs Tindale bequeathed the garden to the Victorian Conservation Trust in memory of her husband in 1980.

Parks Victoria commenced management of the garden in 1995.
