Goronga plant list

In the October 2021 issue of Australian Garden History, Tim Gatehouse writes about the history of  Goronga, a grazing property with a hill-station garden  in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, 55 kilometres from Melbourne. The two driveways that converge on the house are lined with Algerian oaks. Other specimen trees planted throughout the garden include a southern magnolia, camphor laurel, varieties of oak, a beech, several Californian redwoods and a Mexican cypress. A plant list of the plantings was prepared in March 2021 by John Hawker (a retired tree expert who worked with Heritage Victoria).

  1. Nice to have a bit of Mr Hawker’s fine work – never heard of a Mandelo before! Bravo Tim and John for this!
