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 plus garden, located 35km west of Port Fairy, boasts an abundance of native plants and wildlife, including a 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 throughout there is extraordinary plant diversity.

In 2014, Timandra by the Sea was awarded Landscaping Victoria's 'Sustainable Landscape' Award. Under its current ownership, it was a former Ecotourism Accredited garden – including being much loved by international cruise ship visitors for being so remarkable different to other gardens – it has a speciality, a cause.

A final note: David and Alison welcome you to their final garden opening and sincerely hope that you enjoy their garden and the other community offerings of the weekend.

Proceeds from the open garden will be donated to the Narrawong District Hall.

Please note: There are steep slopes and significant steps in the garden – not accessible wheelchairs or the infirm. However, the viewing platform is accessible for prams/pushers and wheelchairs.

Also at the garden opening will be:

The 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 (via EFT or cash) which has proved very popular for those who enjoy modern art.
