Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

My wife & I went with friends to the open garden day on Sunday 14th April. The gardens are huge and pleasant to walk around but we were rather disappointed at the lack of flowers. The gardens are mostly trees and lawn. I'm sure that, in the spring, the rhododendrons and azaleas will be spectacular.

Duneira is a very pleasant late 19th century country house full of books, interesting furniture and lovely rooms with outlook on to beautiful gardens, situated near the summit of Mt. Macedon. The house is situated in a large and very beautiful Englsh style estate with sequences of walled gardens and enormous trees around pleasant rolling lawns. It is worth visiting just to explore the gardens but there is an annual program of fine concerts and lectures held in the drawing room so that a visit to a concert may be able to be combined with exploration of the gardens.

You'd be forgiven if you thought you stumbled thru the looking glass & ended up in an English garden...

Majestic long driveway lined with towering Elms, bluebells & forget me nots, holly hedges, expansive lawns, lilac bushes, chestnuts, oaks to name a few. Your eyes are drawn to abundant roses, camellias, azaleas & rhododendrons in flower & other annuals not in bloom. Trees - both decidudous, evergreen & indigenous incl. some exotic species. The flowering dogwoods in the central terrace lawn is a sight to behold. Photograhers haven!

To add to the intrigue is a "secret" garden bordered by high vicious holly hedges (designed to keep roos out but got caught in my rear - so beware!)

The sprawling gardens captured my imagination in a way that Cruden farm never did nor Rippon Lea for that matter. I have visited a lot of gardens & I loved this one for the way it all came together beautifully without the home being dwarfed by it.

Duneira itself reeks English country house layout (info sheet says Italianate villa exterior) - turn of 19th century country retreat that is compact but has a functional interior. We did the official tour - the gardens open up vistas from the front rooms. There are collection of artworks by famous painters/sculptors & the persian carpets are pretty. Definitely worth seeing.

Bring a picnic lunch & spend at least 3 hours to do it justice. Verandah has tables & chairs if weather is inclement. Recent Sun visit - booked online for morning tea (tea + choice of two sweets ), very brief piano recital & guided tour of house for $18. The Director gives a talk on the history of the ownership & how the garden was established & does the tour.

Separate entry fee of $8 for the gardens or $20 for guided tour of gardens with brief live music at the end. Only open at specific times during the year - book online. There are other music recitals & events.
No city views - this garden runs along the main road to Mt Macedon memorial park but is hidden. Pretty noisy with the weekend traffic & beware of speeding cyclists on the roads!

We attended an $18 house tour with morning tea served in beautiful Royal Albert china, with sweet treats made locally. It was most informative and it was a unique experience to see the art collection and poke around the elegant house to witness how a line of prestigious owners added character features to this historical property. Friends followed up with a garden tour that discussed all the woods used to make musical instruments showcasing the European botanical species in the fine garden. After our BYO picnic lunch using the plastic chairs and tables provided on the house verandah, overlooking the sweeping lawn and spectacularly flowering, pink Dogwood, another in our group wanted to join the author talk and book club event. The calendar of events scheduled at Duneira is the best reason to visit the property. [See the website]. The Spring garden was attractive with some of the most towering and voluminous rhododendrons I have ever seen in a Victorian garden. We attended on their November open day and expected busy crowds - not so. Had we come only for the open day, the short walk around the garden was not a good justification for the $10 entry fee - not that much to see or do. Forest Glades nearby ($8 entry) had more meandering paths and decorative statues to capture the walker's attention. Heaps of on-site car parking - an advantage not provided by Forest Glades or Tieve Tara.

Did a house and the garden tours and we really enjoyed it. The house has a very interesting history behind it and our guide was very passionate and knowledgeable about it and keen to share it. The gardens are beautifully manicured, and some plants are very rare and interesting for those with an interest in horticulture. Highly recommended!

I recently attended a wedding in the gardens of Duneira, what a beautiful location the gardens are magnificent. The wedding was held in the meadow in front of the manner house. I would highly recommend this venue to any prospective brides as a place to consider for a garden wedding

The generousity of Castlemaine businesman and collector Stuart R. Stoneman is amazing.The well preserved 1875 Italianate style hill station is one of only four hill station residences at Mount Macedon believed to have been built in the 1870s that survived the devastating 1983 bushfires.

The homestead is full of his collection of art, furniture and books. Tours of the house, art collection and garden are available. Bookings are essential.
There is also a diverse and interesting programme of literary and musical events.

The extensive garden is also of great interest for its rare and historically important botanical specimens and notable avenues of trees. The southern area of the 15.4 hectare site has a park-like landscape with an informal planting scheme, and includes many significant conifers, broad-leaved deciduous trees, rhododendrons and other cool climate plants. The northern half of the property contains orchards of fruit and chestnut trees and paddocks for stock.
