What is Somersby Gardens Estate?

The Property was established in 2003 as a home for Professor Lloyd Ibels and his wife Brenda.

The Gardens were established in 2005 and have quickly received recognition as a magnificent display of native flora and fauna.

Lloyd passed away in 2009 and as a legacy to Lloyd, Brenda decided to share their paradise by establishing self-contained accommodation to enable visitors to participate in the relaxing atmosphere and absorb the ambiance experienced by being in Somersby Gardens Estate.

The Garden also has a magnificent outdoor amphitheatre which can be utilised for speciality displays, performances or weddings. Extensive earthworks were carried out with excellent displays of rock walls and features throughout.
