ABOUT THE FAIR
Bolobek is a unique working farm at the foot of the Macedon Ranges boasting a rich history, great quality beef and lamb and a glorious garden. Since 2006, the current owners, Brigid and Hugh Robertson have invested extraordinary passion and energy into the continuing renovation and rejuvenation of this magnificent property.
Bolobek is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register as “being of aesthetic, architectural historic and horticultural importance to the State of Victoria". Bolobek is of outstanding aesthetic importance for its quality design, artistry and plantsmanship, the creation of garden spaces and views and the combination of plant forms with an emphasis on foliage and white flowers and bark.
Bolobek is of historic significance as an outstanding example of a modern formal garden style incorporating geometrically shaped compartments, axial paths with terminal features and for the axial associations with the house and room plan. The garden is important for demonstrating a creative design style as an overlay on an earlier garden layout”.
Attendees to the Garden Lovers’ Fair are welcome to roam the garden at Bolobek between 10:00am until 4:00pm on both Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 October. Guided tours by the owner and head gardener will be conducted at 2:30pm on both days.
