The owners of this large garden are excited about their first opening and are passionate about Australian plants. They wanted a habitat garden for native birds and animals. Now the whole block is totally planted with natives.

Water (all downpipes feed the system) flows from “under” the house in a little creek, and beneath wooden boardwalks, to finally cascade over a rocky ledge into the billabong. A Phillip Johnson water feature is a highlight in this garden.

Fallen bark and branch debris is left to form habitat for creatures), and the paths are very informal, narrow and uneven.  

The front garden, from the street, is steeply terraced at the end with a retaining wall, and planted with many indigenous plants. There is also a propagating area at the side of the house.

Visitors are invited to wander the garden, listen to frog calls and enjoy the beautiful water features.

Native plants and Australian plant books will be on sale both days. Take the opportunity to meet and chat with AB Bishop - journalist, horticulturalist and best-selling author of Habitat, who will be in attendance Saturday morning. Marilyn Bull - author of Flora of Melbourne, will be there Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon and will talk about Melbourne’s indigenous flora.

Some of the proceeds from this garden opening will be donated to the new Chelsea Australian Garden at Olinda and to the Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne.

No dogs please.

Why not also visit The Hanson Garden in the area open the same weekend.
