What can guests enjoy at Branklyn Garden?

This beautiful garden, a pleasant haven within easy reach of Perth city centre, was created by John and Dorothy Renton in the early 1920s after they designed their Arts & Crafts-inspired home. It's on the side of Kinnoull Hill, overlooking Perth.

The couple were happy to have a garden of exotic and unique plants and flowers from all over the world. Thanks to the seeds gathered by famous plant hunters (including George Forrest and Frank Ludlow) and the exceptional gardening abilities of Dorothy, the couple's wishes were granted.
