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 and Foundation – 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.

Browse through the Garden Shop and Nursery and speak to knowledgeable 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.

The Garden and Diggers Garden Shop are open daily from 10:00am. The cafe is currently closed as we make preparations to reopen cafe dining in our historic Heronswood House later this year. We apologise for any inconvenience.

All profits from the Diggers Club are used to support the work of The Diggers Foundation.
