Each garden has a unique design with a variety of trees, plants, landscape features and welcoming spaces for people to sit and enjoy the inspiring surrounds. The features include a labyrinth, reflective pond, sculpture and stone walls. Opened last weekend are four of the gardens -The Open Gardens Australia Celebration Garden, The Labyrinth Garden, The AIDS Garden of Reflection and Mununja the Butterfly Garden. The Gallery of Gardens has been created through the generous donations and fundraising efforts of many individuals and organisations.
