Planting of this large all-native garden began in 2003. Today the garden features over 1000 individual species, including more than 70 acacia species and more than 70 grevillea species, making for a spectacular spring display. A wide range of bird species frequent the garden and the number is increasing as the garden develops. Existing mature eucalypts are complemented by plants sourced from a wide variety of local, regional and far-flung sources, including some not normally grown in the Canberra region. One section of the garden has been developed as a dry ‘rainforest’ gully using species with glossy, dark green leaves.
Funds raised from the open garden will be given to the National Rock Garden. An inspiring collection of rock sculptures by Austrian sculptor, Andreas Buisman, will be displayed in the garden and available for sale.
