Bringalbit Country Retreat is a unique part of Australia rural history and the setting is stunning. Nestled in the rolling granite hills inland from the Great Dividing Range some 30 kms NNW of Mount Macedon in Victoria.

The 10 acres of gardens surrounding the 1870′s granite homestead include a large lake, traditional hedges, orchard, roses, massive conifers, oaks, rockery and surprises around every corner.

A walk behind the gardens takes you to a panorama of the area’s huge boulders throughout the rural vista.

I fell in love with Bringalbit when I saw the 1890s lake covered in white waterlilies and wild waterbirds. We came from Beechworth where we had an art and craft gallery - the Buckland Gallery - for many years. My husband and I are both artists, so this was the perfect place to live. My background in art is reflected in the presentation of Bringalbit.
