Yurnga is an Aboriginal word that means 'view among the hills'. On this property a massive Moreton Bay Fig greets you at the entrance. The size of this tree is testament to how long-ago Shirley transformed this paddock into an eclectic garden. Japanese Maples, a silver pear tree and a cussonia, are just some of the beautiful trees spread around this large property. Magnificent vistas between the trees lead to the mountains.

Succulents and grasses abound. Miscanthus, pennisetums as well as Karl Foerster’s Calamagrostis can be seen nodding their heads in the breeze.

The plantsperson will find floral treasures while roaming through this Mediterranean inspired garden but the greatest treasure of all, is Shirley herself, who is still gardening at 94 years of age.

Some of the proceeds from this opening will be donated to the Gippsland and East Gippsland Aboriginal Cooperative Inc.

Extra Activities in the Area:

Yurnga is located on the lands of the Gunaikurnai people. Open Gardens Victoria wish to acknowledge the Traditional custodians and we pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
