6 May @ 10:00 am - 7 May @ 4:00 pm
Yellowbox comprises about a hectare of densely planted shrubby native plants of great variety, on an elevated rocky knoll, surrounding the owner’s home. The garden, started in 1997, includes meandering, pleasant paths taking visitors to many garden sections, including fruit trees. Main species include banksias, callistemons, coreas, croweas, prostantheras, eriostemons, eremophilas and many groundcovers. The lack of high canopy affords 360 degree views to the rural landscape. Mown paths allow interested visitors to take short walks beyond the perimeter of the garden (not near dams) where large Yellow Box, Red Box, Stringybark, Black Cypress, wattle, Casuarina trees feature.
The 45 acre property, featuring native pastures with cattle, also includes perimeter shelter belts. There have been substantial changes to the plantings after the effects of the 2019 drought and the cool, rainy period after that.
YELLOW BOX Garden notes 2023 are available.
