Cruden Farm, Langwarrin. More than eighty years in the making and the heart of a working farm, the garden at Cruden Farm is a small piece of country set amidst the edge of ever-expanding suburbia. Though it was laid out by Edna Walling in 1929, its character – and its sense of serenity – is down to Dame Elisabeth Murdoch. One of the few vestiges of the Walling design is the beautiful avenue of lemon-scented gums that formed the original driveway.

Cruden Farm, Langwarrin. Winter at Cruden Farm reveals the shape of the trees. You are more aware of the art works around the garden, especially the new sculpture by the water, and of the warm brown local stone in walls, stables and the massive chimneys. The house’s slender white plantation-style verandah columns stretch up unobscured, echoed by the white trunks of nearby melaleucas, and the silver-toned eucalypts along the drive.
