The Coriole Estate Garden was initally planted by Molly Lloyd in the 1970's. Over the years the garden has grown and evolved from an unlandscaped patch of red-brown dirt to a unique, multi-level Australian cottage garden. The garden has been meticulously cared for since its inception and is now maintained by Molly's only daughter Ann Lloyd Wilson.
Ann continually modifies the various garden areas to accommodate changes in season, water regulations and the Estate requirements. The garden beds feature a large diversity of plants both native and European.
The Coriole Estate has been designed to provide space for performances and spectators alike. The 2 large grass areas are fringed by stunning views across McLaren Vale's undulating, vine-studded landscape, to the Willunga Hills and across the Fleurieu coast line. A range of flourishing garden beds and the original 1850's dwellings provide a truly unique and stunning backdrop for the many performing arts, musical shows, events and weddings Coriole host.
