A Historical Property – Goonoo Goonoo Homestead

Project completed by Nature's Vision Landscapes in 2016.

Goonoo Goonoo Station (gun-a-gun-oo) is one of the New England region’s most prized and historical pastoral properties. Established as a sheep station in 1831 it is set on 4,430ha of land approximately 25 km south of Tamworth, and forms part of the original land grant by King George IV.  Recent extensive restorations now include a restaurant, luxury self contained accommodation and boutique event space.

This was a remarkable and rewarding project for Adam Eurell, Director of Nature’s Vision Landscapes and his team.   The construction phase commenced in 2014 and was completed at the end of 2016 and the entire team was relocated to the area for the duration.

The landscape has been designed to enhance the grandeur of the original homestead and embrace the modern feel of the new renovations. Stunning hardscape elements include the Basalt gravel drive, edged by bull-nosed granite sections and Bluestone rumbled cobblestones.

The plant palette includes a mix of flowering perennials, ornamental grasses and deciduous trees sourced by our dedicated Sales Executive from a mix of Alpine grown stock and specialist growers along Australia’s East Coast.

Alpine Nurseries is very proud to have worked closely with Nature’s Vision Landscapes throughout this project, supplying a wide range of unique, high quality plants and coordinating delivery to site as each stage of the project commenced.

Adam Eurell, Director of Nature’s Vision Landscapes comments “We have worked closely with Alpine Nurseries since commencing business over 20 years ago.  This is one of our most prestigious projects and it was essential to work with a reliable supplier of quality plants. Alpine Nurseries once again met our demands for sourcing quality and unique stock, met delivery deadlines and communicated clearly, we were always kept well informed regarding our orders. Thanks again to the team at Alpine.”
