Residents are invited to explore one of the Macedon Ranges’ ultimate blokey backyards this weekend.

The gates on Terry Moore’s Teldorado garden will open to the public from September 2-13 as part of Kyneton Daffodil Festival’s open garden program.

Mr Moore first opened his Drummond North property in 2013 and has raised $7500 towards improving mental health outcomes in Macedon Ranges and Hepburn shires over subsequent years.

He wants to raise another $2500 from this year’s open garden – his last effort – for the Macedon Ranges Suicide Prevention Action Group.

“This year, there’s a new bar, a safer place for my dog, Digher, a couple of new water tanks and loads of other stuff,” Mr Moore says.

“Seven days a week, Teldorado is primarily my place, but I knows it’s a pretty good bloke’s backyard, and things just look better than last year.”

The cool room is covered in beer coasters and the outdoor pizza oven will be cooking healthy pizzas during the open garden.

Teldorado is at 311 Taradale Road, Drummond North. Entry is by gold coin donation. Details: 0439 559 587 or
