Located in the Western District of Victoria, Murndal is an early surviving garden of the pastoral era in Victoria, designed as an Old World English park-like like estate. Established in 1830 by Samuel Pratt Winter whose objective was to found a large landed estate of substance and longevity in the colonies.
The Western District of Victoria was frequently likened to a ‘gentleman’s park’ and Winter, like others, saw its suitability for this form of landscape treatment and the possibility of transforming the lightly timbered grasslands into a pleasing English parkland.
