Heronswood House and Garden

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Heronswood is a breathtaking historic property situated on two hectares of formal gardens in Dromana. It is the home of the Digger’s Club – Australia’s most respected gardening organisation, dedicated to preserving heirloom seeds and the best gardening traditions.

The gardens comprise stunning perennial and annual borders as well as kitchen and vegetable parterre gardens, providing inspiration to cooks and gardeners.

The fork to fork restaurant is located within the historic house surrounded by the stunning grounds of Heronswood gardens and sea views. The menu changes weekly, just as the gardens do, and features the freshest organic heirloom vegetables and fruit from our own gardens matched with local produce and wines. Escape from the crowds and relax over lunch or recharge over morning or afternoon tea.

Browse through the Garden Shop and Nursery and speak to knowledgable staff for expert gardening advice. The Diggers Garden Shop stocks the complete Diggers range of heirloom seeds and plants, plus garden hardware and books for all your garden needs.

Heronswood also hosts an extensive ‘Learn with Diggers’ program – with workshops, masterclasses and gardening intensives most weekends.

You can grow a beautiful and productive garden and we can show you how.
