Heritage Talk – The Rippon Lea Fernery

12pm & - 2pm

Friday 11 May

Discover the history of the Rippon Lea fernery, one of the only existing Victorian ferneries of its kind found in the Southern Hemisphere. Justin Buckley, Head of Horticulture for The National Trust of Victoria will share the social history of the fernery and its significance in Victorian times

The Rippon Lea Estate Gardens are of national significance; a tranquil oasis in the middle of suburbia. At their heart is the magnificent fernery. During this 40 minute talk, visitors will learn about the development of the fernery; it’s place in Rippon Lea’s overall garden design, and the part it played in the leisure activities of the families who have lived at Rippon Lea.

This event has limited numbers due to the uneven terrain and narrow paths inside the fernery.
