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”.
Since 2008, many restoration works have been undertaken. Most recently, the Robertsons have designed and planted a large picking and vegetable garden immediately adjacent to site of the original Syme vegetable garden.
Thousands of trees have been planted on the property, and a significant project involving the clean-up, fencing and planting out of waterways has been undertaken in conjunction with Melbourne Water.
Join the owner and head gardener for a personal tour of one of Australia’s most significant gardens.
