Cruden Farm is the much loved home of the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch. It was given to her as a wedding present by her husband, Sir Keith Murdoch, in 1928.

Eighty four years of hands-on involvement by Dame Elisabeth has transformed the landscape of Cruden Farm into one of Australia’s most iconic and aesthetically pleasing country gardens. Situated on 133 acres the property consists of an internationally recognised garden, beautiful rolling paddocks and pockets of indigenous vegetation.

Visit on designated open days or by appointment.
