- This nursery has changed owners in the past couple of years, with plant prices rising.
There's no doubt it stocks an enormous range of Australian native plants, although its emphasis if there is one tends to be on Melbourne's eastern suburbs species, not so much on 'the famous Melbourne sandbelt' with a Cheltenham nonprofit competitor, Bayside Community Nursery offering a far better range at much keener prices with stock suited to the wide expanse of southern Melbourne that has sandy soil.
Staff at the nursery are OK, although sometimes can be a tad abrupt.
On this occasion I snuck a look at the associated cafe, having previously eaten there. Prices have significantly risen so I didn't repeat the dining.
I don't find the nursery's prices cheap. its newish owner knows only a few other private sector nurseries in Melbourne4's suburbs stock large ranges of Australian (including Victorian provenance) natives/indigenous plants, so Kuranga prices accordingly. The closest competitor in terms of range is Austplant at Arthurs Seat near Dromana on the Mornington Peninsula, but this is more than 50 kilometres from the Melbourne GPO.
Delivering plants is difficult as Australia Post and most private couriers don't handle them: 'too hard', but Kuranga doesn't seem interested in providing a delivery service through a specialist road contractor.
The nursery can be reached by train to Lilydale or (second best) to Heathmont (latter is on the Belgrave line) with the connecting bus, route 679 running every half an hour on weekdays. This is far cheaper than driving if one doesn't live within a few kilometres of this outer suburban nursery.Written 4 April 2023
- The village of Mount Evelyn is centred around a vibrant street flanked by ancient trees including the spectacular listed Illawara Flame Tree, famous for its bright red bell-shaped flowers which cover the tree when it’s leafless... it's enchanting.
The memorial is beautifully located in the middle of the village...there is also a gun here, but the memorial is a stunning one. The monument commemorates those from Mount Evelyn who died in service or were killed in action in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. I was here on Anzac Day , so it was adorned with wreaths.
I was not the only one taking a moment to look at this memorial... it's worth taking a moment to stop to look at if you are in the area... it is across the road from Passchendaele Cafe.Written 1 May 2022
- This is a delightful little playground in the centre of Mount Evelyn...the most charming little village in the suburbs of Melbourne. It's very close to the shops, so you can go shopping or stop for coffee near here. There are also public toilets nearby.
The skate park is located next to Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail.Skate park features:
*Two levels, transfer with stairs from the top level to the bottom level
*Top level includes an entry path with small quarter pipe, rail and fun box
*Bottom level includes large quarter pipes, roll overs, flat banks, ledges and rails.
It's worth taking children here to play, it's designed for all ages...with the skate park here ... it's well designed for families.Written 1 May 2022
