Monte Christo Gardens
Hi, and welcome to our web page about Monte Christo Gardens. Today Monte Christo Gardens has a café, minigolf, mazes and majestic gardens for adults and children to relax and have fun in. Mr Feraud was the founder of Monte Christo Gardens he started it as a vineyard in 1867. He imported his vines from Victoria, Australia, where he had owned land previously. He had owned a bakery and a restaurant but due to debts he had to sell. He came to Dunstan and prospected for gold down past the old bridge by the Clutha River. He became mayor of Clyde in 1886. He sold his wine in Melbourne, Sydney, Paris and Philadelphia in international exhibitions. Mr Feraud died in 1896 at the age of 76. Over the years Monte Christo Gardens has changed hands many different times. Mr and Mrs Gourley (the owners today) have transformed Monte Christo Gardens into a fun filled place for all ages. Open from 11am to 5pm, December to February.
