ACT Monaro Riverina Branch. Studies of Some Historic Gardens in the Region.
The first AGHS Conference in Canberra in 1985 included a visit to the historically significant and evocative Durham Hall garden near Braidwood, NSW. Two years later the recently established ACT Monaro Riverina Branch began, with the enthusiastic support of the property owners, to research and document the history of the garden and its plants. The outcome was a small booklet, Durham Hall Garden (1992).
Over the next twelve years five further booklets were published by the Branch:
- Fifield Garden (1992)
- St Omer Garden (1994)
- Mount Erlington Garden (1996)
- Coolringdon Garden (1998)
- Early Ainslie Gardens (2004).
