Bridgeward Grove is a story of rural Australia
Peter and Julie Howard have lived on their property in Goornong for the past 36 years. In 2011, after the biggest harvest ever, the farm gate outlet and conservatory were built. Here, the processing of olives has been perfected. Oils, olive products and various seasonal preserves sourced from their orchard are produced at Bridgeward Grove. These have been sold at markets, our local Information Centres and at the farm gate outlet in Goornong.
At Bridgeward Grove, their vision is to be a destination where visitors can discover an authentic and unique experience. Locals, tourists, families and passers by can visit and share the place that the Howard family calls home. Explore the grove, where you'll find some of the oldest olive trees in Australia.
Visitors have opportunities to learn the Indigenous history of the area as discovered by the Howard Family and watch a unique marionette performance called “Swagman’s Luck”. Appreciate works of arts, hold private functions, attend special events and enjoy olives, olive products and preserves in the peaceful setting of Bridgeward Grove.
