Simmons Reef: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Garden of St Erth


The Garden of St Erth is a beautiful historic house and garden not far from Daylesford and Ballarat.

Explore the gardens and discover an extraordinary range of espaliered fruit, heirloom vegetables and drought tolerant flowers.

Thousands of naturalised daffodils carpet the lawns in September, and through the summer months, the herbaceous border features Diggers perennials and grasses. The month of May marks the end of the gardening year with a blaze of autumn-coloured trees and late perennials.

Cocooned in the Wombat State Forest, the bush garden plays host to a variety of native birds, as well as being a place of restful contemplation.

Visit the nursery and ask the knowledgeable staff all of your gardening questions. There is a huge selection of heirloom seeds and plants available for you to take home and add to your own garden.

Relax over coffee in the cafe and stay on for lunch, morning or afternoon tea surrounded in the beauty of the gardens.

The Diggers Club is committed to sustainable gardening and visitors will find inspirational ideas for gardening organically, becoming more self-sufficient and saving precious water while still enjoying nature's bounty.

Victorian award winning singer/songwriter Arkie T Williams weaves story and song together with skilled beauty. A diverse artist, Williams delivers tunes with conviction and an alternative country edge. Her tales of love, war and moments in between leave audiences in no doubt of her skill as both writer and performer. Influences such as Gillian Welch and Ry Cooder are present in her style however her style is her own.

Toe tapping tunes with halting moments of sorrowful beauty.

Songs like 'The Bastard Waltz' introduced with prose about her fatherless beginnings are gutsy, raw and sorrowful. Her emotive voice takes listeners to her heart space.

River, her latest single, smells of Americana bourbon stomp. Just try and stand still.

Arkie T Williams is one of the quality female songwriter/performers of the Australian music scene.
