Nooroo is a privately owned garden of great beauty and botanical interest.

Nooroo was built and planted in 1880 by William Hay and original plantings include English oaks, chestnuts, ash and cedars which are underplanted with thousands of bulbs including, bluebells, daffodils and crocus. The display of bulbs are at their best each year in October

The property was owned by the Valder family from 1917 to 1992 at which time, Anthony and Lorraine Barrett bought the property.

Since 1992, the Barretts have maintained the existing formal garden and have also undertaken extensive work to create a number of new garden rooms.

Famous for its wisteria collection, hostas, lilly of the valley and Japanese iris have been planted to compliment the delicate pastels of the wisteria.  Nooroo also has many rare maples, azaleas and rhododendrons.

In April and May, the garden has wonderful autumn colour. Many of the shrubs and maples have been underplanted with white nerines which creates a stunning display, particularly in April.  The colours are at their best in the ten days after April 25th

In Spring, from August to late November, in addition to the Wisteria collection, camellias, magnolias, lilacs, peonies and many other trees and shrubs are in full flower.

A collection of stunning photographs of Nooroo can be seen in the The gardens at Nooroo Photo Gallery and at the Nooroo Facebook page.
