Rose Hill – Harcourt


Rose Hill is the last of the four gardens I visited on the 4th of November 2013.

As with the other gardens in this series, the garden surrounds a house built from local granite quarried at Mt. Alexander.

Rose Hill was built in 1906 and is testimony to the prosperity of the apple industry at the time.

In 1999, community opposition plus an historic tree in its grounds saved Rose Hill from demolition to make way for the new Calder Freeway.

    • Yes Enivea, It is heartening when public pressure brings about a change for the good.
