We are also thrilled that the garden has made the cover of a recent issue of Our Garden magazine, which is the quarterly journal of The Garden Clubs of Australia. We also featured in House & Garden and Australian Country and now find ourselves in a book about country gardens (see the story among our news items).

Below is shown Camellia reticulata 'Ellie's Girl' which is just one of the lovely camellias in this mountain garden that herald the beginning of the garden's spring floral show.
