Lakeside

Lakeside at the gardens is special at all times of the year, framed with tree ferns, Japanese windflowers and many colours of iris reflecting in the water. The lake is a haven for water birds, fish, frogs and is crossed by the beautiful old stone bridge which was built many years ago and was already on the site when volunteers began developing the Gardens in 1983.Lakeside-with-bridge

Japanese windflowers and the Blue Bridge

The Blue Bridge was added to cross the creek and is known at Annetta’s Bridge to honour an early member.  It gives the volunteers quick access between the potting sheds and provides a lovely focus at the end of the lake.
