Bringalbit is a stunning old property with something for everyone to enjoy. The highland cattle and are a constant delight for visitors, as are the peacocks. Wandering through the garden, along the lake and through the olive grove you may discover discover ducks, guinea fowl, wild wallaby’s and menagerie of other farm animals.Bringalbit nestles in a gentle fold of landscape just below a high point in the rolling granite hills inland from the Great Dividing Range and some 30 kms NNW of Mt. Macedon, Victoria.
This area was over-cleared for grazing many years ago, so the few remnant Peppermint Gums, Yellow Box and Manna Gums fail to break the winds. Fortunately the garden is well protected on three sides by huge old confers, willow and poplar thickets, Monterey pines and Osage trees, nearly all planted in the 19th century.
HISTORY OF BRINGALBIT
A unique part of Australia’s rural history.
Bringalbit has developed over time. The 1263 acres of land was first bought by John Apperley who owned it from 1858 till 1866. After it’s settlement in 1858, the granite homestead was build in at least three stages, while the garden too has had contributions to it, by various people, over man years.
