About Truby King House & Garden
Truby King House and Garden is a 1.9 hectare heritage-listed estate in Melrose. The estate was once home to Sir Truby and Lady Isabella King - founders of the Plunket Society.
Today the gardens offer a picturesque slice of history. Sir Truby is widely remembered for his contribution to improving the health of children and the mentally ill. But he also had famously green thumbs.
The garden Sir Truby planted in the 1920s of pines, roses, rhododendrons and azaleas is still there today, and maintained by Council gardeners. Entry is free.
The Truby King Mausoleum is also located in the garden.
