Secret Gardens and Teahouse
hrs Estimate Duration
Tucked behind a stately hedge in a quiet suburb lies on of Victoria’s best kept secrets- the magical Abkhazi Garden with its exquisite design and rich history. Wander with your guide through this beautiful garden of dramatic glaciated rocky slopes, magnificent Garry oaks and gorgeous vistas. Then, filled with the garden’s sights and scents, retreat to the charming teahouse to enjoy a three-tier Royal tea. Seated in the teahouse-Prince and Princess Abkhazi’s original residence- allow yourself to be transported back in time, as your guide recounts the couple’s captivating story of privilege and tragedy, separation and romance. It’s a story that spans three continents and a world war, and which gave life to this exquisite garden. Finally, relaxed by the tranquillity of this garden oasis and replete after a royal tea, reboard your coach for a reflective city tour before heading back to the pier. ** Garden is closed to the general public**
