Details (Known As) Forest Lodge House, Outbuildings, Garden and Garden Components
Registered Name Forest Lodge House, Outbuildings, Garden and Garden Components
Significance 'Forest Lodge' is a significant example of a 'hill-station' style of residence developed in the Adelaide Hills in the 1890s and which included an extensive private 'botanic garden'. Unlike most of these properties, this garden concentrated upon the development of a pinetum, resulting in a remarkable mature conifer collection today that is of state significance, and possessing several rare and unusual species. In conjunction with the garden was a large Victorian Baronial residence. Both house and garden philosophically have been maintained since their creation in 1889-1892, and additions and northern Italian garden style expansions extended the grounds without comprising the larger vision for the landscape of the property. 'Forest Lodge' remains as a significant property possessing a high value garden and botanical collection within which a well-crafted residence and series of garden components complement the place with associations with the Bagot family, and designers Bayer and Menzel.

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
