The garden’s seasons
The Dantosa garden has been designed to provide colour all year round, providing many photo opportunities. The autumn colours are spectacular around the lake and on the hill behind Dantosa House. The wall of purple and blue hydrangeas can be enjoyed in summer and you can enjoy the field of over 15 varieties of daffodils in spring. Early morning mists occur in the winter and some years there is snow. The Australian bush can be explored all year around at the bottom of the property with its eucalypt trees, wattle, bottlebrush and protea flowers.
