Talk – Goronga: A hill station garden in the Dandenongs

September 16, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Narre Warren & District Family History Group presents Elizabeth Fraser, OAM, President of the Berwick-Pakenham Historical Society, who will be talking about her home Goronga, at Pakenham Upper. The 60-acre farm was established in the 1870s, and twenty years later began the establishment of gardens around the house. Elizabeth’s chance encounter with a member of the Australian Garden History Society, at an open day, then lead to a two-year project to record the history of the property and the publication of a book in September 2022.

When: Saturday, September 16 2023 at 2.00pm.  Venue: L’Arté Central Social Enterprise Café Training Room, Casey Complex, 65 Berwick-Cranbourne Road, Cranbourne East  & Zoom.
