When Eryldene was built in 1914, it was so way out that the neighbours described it as a tram shed, and told Council that it would lower the value of the rest of the street. Come and enjoy the cutting edge architecture of this early 20th century place, the home of the late Professor EG Waterhouse and his wife Janet. Experience one of the finest examples of Hardy Wilson architecture, and the garden famous for its collection of camellias and azaleas, now at the height of their flowering season. Sit and enjoy the tranquility of the garden “rooms” and explore the “secret pathways” that children love. When: Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September 2017, 10:00am-4:00pm Where: 17 McIntosh Street, Gordon. Cost: Adults $8, concession $6, children $4, Family (2 adults, 2 children) $18.
