25   Maranup Ford

A large riverside country garden

Open Main Festival: Thursday 2 to Tuesday 7 November.

Maranup Ford is a large  farm garden which has evolved from a few rose bushes and necessary vegetable garden of the early days to a peaceful haven for visitors and birds.  Spring is always very pretty with the cottage garden flowers growing as they wish amongst the rose beds.  There is an extensive collection of trees and a garden with many rooms and interesting plants.

The Homestead was built in 1917 and while it is not open to the public it is still worth  visiting and seeing the architecture and  bricks which were made on site.
