About Us

After several camping trips to the Tarra Bulga National Park and noticing Tarradise Gardens up for sale, we made the move from the eastern suburbs of Melbourne in 2005. It was not just a love for the gardens and joy of restoring the original home, but the ability to build on a landscape that had established trees and using a long-term vision to bring the gardens alive through new infrastructure and plantings, and to share the gardens with interest groups and the general public. This is the same vision that John and Joy Hosking had, thus we are able to build upon what they had started, and likewise, add our mark in that process for the future bearers of Tarradise Gardens.
