The garden is also open this weekend, November 11 and 12, from 10am to 4pm.

Prospect Hill is nestled under Mount Prospect and features about three acres of rambling cottage gardens, a vegetable garden, a small orchard and an olive grove.

Standard climbing and bush roses feature prominently with many varieties of perennials and annuals including salvias, holy hock, fox gloves and sweet peas.

There are numerous varieties of deciduous and native trees in a park-like setting, which also includes two small ponds and a large dam, which attract a variety of birdlife.

The garden also includes arbours and man-made structures, which complement its large and diverse layout.

Additionally there is a native area featuring spotted gums and callistemon.

Prospect Hill is 22km south of Benalla on the Benalla-Tatong Rd or 3km from the Tatong Tavern if heading towards Benalla.

Morning and afternoon teas and light lunches will be available, entry is $5 for adults and a gold coin for kids.

All proceeds will go to the Greta Valley Primary School and the McGrath Foundation.
