If you are love to explore and spend time surrounded by beautiful gardens and all things historically Australian, then you might like to keep an eye out on my ‘Historic Houses and Gardens‘ website page. I have carefully listed just a few of the many spots often included in Australia’s National Trust and Heritage sites. Don’t forget to check online to confirm if and when they are open to the public.
Can’t wait to see picturesque Bowral. Tomorrow Sundaya 7 March, I’m heading out to paint ‘en plien air’. I have a booked ‘timed- tour’ at the beautiful historic Retford House and gardens, located in Bowral. To get there you need to head up Merrigang Street from Bong Bong Street, the main street in Bowral, turn right at the ‘T’ intersection to arrive at Retford on 1325 Old South Road.
Look and you will find me and my easel painting under a large shady tree or perhaps munching on a homemade ham, avacado and lettuce sandwich. Stay tuned for my paintings of the magnificent site….coming shortly.
