Escape to the French countryside right here in NSW at Merribee Gardens.
Dairy Farm Turned French Country Garden
Merribee Gardens in Numbaa was formally a dairy farm until Lucy and Richard Marshall purchased the property in 2000 and transformed it into seven acres of absolutely spellbinding gardens. Located in Numbaa on the South Coast roughly 2 hours from Sydney, a mingling of coastal NSW with French Country flair is on offer at the stunning Merribee Gardens.
