Retford Park and Ngununggula Regional Gallery

20 mins drive from Moss Manor


 For a must visit to the highlands combine both Garden and Gallery by Visiting Retford Park . Originally owned by James Fairfax and now run by the National Trust , the Retford Park gardens are expansive and parklike whilst The Southern Highlands regional Gallery “Ngununggula”, in the old diary shed should not be missed . It is a beautiful space with a terrific sense of tranquility and the exhibitions are always worth seeing. Past exhibitions include a John Olsen retrospective, Tracey Emin and a seriously fun and colourful exhibition of Ken Done in collaboration with Rosie Deacon
