Bishop's Lodge

Bishop’s Lodge Historic House and Heritage Rose Garden

Bishop’s Lodge is an 1888 iron house designed by architect John Sulman and the Bishop of the Riverina to combat the region’s extreme climate. The building is surrounded by a historic garden, which contains a remarkable collection of heritage roses, many of which are unique to the garden.

Take a tour of the house and garden, talk to an enthusiast, make a cuppa, buy a potted rose or browse through the souvenirs, but above all, enjoy the tranquillity of this 19th century treasure.

The Bishop's Lodge Market is held on the third Sunday in October.
