Victorian garden at Queenscliff

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Pilot James Dean built the first two rooms of this solid-brick Victorian in the 1850s.

To compliment the house, front and side gardens were created in the Victorian style using English Box  hedges to create symmetrical structure. A simple planting of lemon trees, lavender, Box and rugosa roses formed a unified frontage, while a mature palm tree of around 15 metres, was moved from its location at the back door, to become a focal point for the side garden.

A shady terrace at the back was built around two existing and very old apple trees flanked by an original Queenscliff Fisherman’s cottage.
