history

Dantosa was originally a goat farm. Dantosa Cottage was built over 120 years ago and this photo, from circa 1970, shows a previous farmer with one of her goats, in front of Dantosa Cottage.

 

Forty years ago, the cleared land was transformed into a unique and beautiful parkland, together with a lake and creek, tennis court, a croquet lawn and small orchard. Over 80% of the land has imported plants, with the remaining lower section of the property a native eucalyptus forest.

the dantosa gardens

The gardens were designed by a student of the famous Blue Mountains landscape gardener Paul Sorensen, and provide colour for each season. Features of the garden include a 50m hydrangea walk, a flax garden, a lily pond, a collection of over 20 types of rhododendron, over 15 varieties of daffodils, a forest of different individual pines and an orchard.
