This is a large 10 acre Australian native bush block. The owners, Bev and John, have previously opened with OGA on numerous occasions. Bev designed the garden, and the emphasis is on habitat for native animals and local flora. 

As you walk through the garden you cannot help but be conscious to the sound of frogs enjoying the two small ponds. These have been placed and landscaped to appear as if they have always been there. Bev worked with Ellis Stones in the later part of his career and she acknowledges that her skill at the placement of large rocks shows an influence from Ellis’ work. The detail of plantings to attract birds, such as the Eastern Spinebill, small wrens and kookaburras is fascinating.
