An evolving mixed garden with water features and quirky pieces of art. A garden of discovery with many gravel paths revealing diverse plantings. An extensive parkland with the Brindabellas as a stunning backdrop.
This very extensive garden and parklands includes many hedges of flower carpet roses, callistemons, conifers and photinias as well as a large dry creek bed with natives. There are three dams, each of different designs and plantings; one flows over to a wetland, another has a terraced garden. There are several memory gardens, including one with a labyrinth. The garden has many lovely water features as well as pieces of art; many of these will delight children. The “Grand Canyon” is a large gully erosion, a long term rehabilitation project.
