The grounds of one of Mount Macedon’s most spectacular gardens will form a beautiful backdrop for a Christmas carol service this Saturday.

Duneira director Jacqueline Ogeil (pictured) is encouraging people to bring a rug and picnic hamper to better enjoy Ensemble Gombert as it performs traditional songs, a cappella style, from 4.30pm.

Tickets are $40 per family; $20 adult and $10 concession. Details: 5426 1490 or www.duneira.com.au
