Red Gums is an inspiring six acre garden designed by renowned landscape architect Sam Cox to complement the large stand of remnant Red Gums that sit amongst 3 billabongs in the front garden. This is one of the largest stands of remnant Red Gums in the area. The garden is a fully Australian native garden.

Planting areas were created to ‘impersonate’ nature, with soft curving lines and generous sized garden beds filled with an abundance of different species of acacias, banksias, grevilleas, leptospermums and eucalypts.

Visitors are encouraged to meander amongst the beds and weave their way through casuarinas, correas and poas.

The garden is a harmonious array of texture, colour and structure. Other feature plants include an old Moreton Bay Fig and orchard area, as well as an underground cellar. 

Sam Cox will talk about the garden at 11.00 a.m. on Saturday
