Timandra’s garden appeal lies in its simplistic, rustic beauty: majestic gums providing habitat for koalas and birds, understorey plants galore, and long views giving depth to the space.
This one acre garden, located 35km west of Port Fairy, boasts an abundance of native plants and wildlife, including an splendid array of bird species, koalas and frogs.
It is a garden of quiet charm: it is a place of learning, about the art of perfecting imperfection through sustainable practice and provides a great sense of calm through this focus. And throughout this garden there is extraordinary plant diversity.
In 2014, Timandra by the Sea was awarded Landscaping Victoria's 'Sustainable Landscape' Award.
Proceeds from the open garden will be donated to the South West Regional Cancer Centre (SWRCC), Warrnambool.
Please note: There are steep slopes in the garden – not accessible wheelchairs or the infirm. The viewing platform only is accessible for prams/pushers and wheelchairs.
Extra activities will be taking place at the garden opening as follows:
- Devonshire tea on both days: $7 adult $4 child
- Alison Aplin Art Gallery open for viewing: www.alisonaplinart.com.au
The gallery is a rustic affair, working with the sustainability aspect of the garden. The art is abstract in a range of media and there are also quality prints available. All works on display are for sale – very popular for those who enjoy modern art.
- Garden sculpture made from recycled goods will be for sale; theme: ‘Nothing in Nature is Perfect’.
