Explore one of Australia’s richest fern collections, with tall tree ferns extending out of the gully as you climb among the vines and shrubs. High-rainfall plants from Australia and New Zealand create a temperate rainforest that’s cool and inviting year-round.
South American Gully
South American Gully was planted with a Gondwanan theme, so you can compare plants from far-flung parts of the globe, looking for clues of their shared origins from the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana.
Hydrangeas are blooming in this shady, tranquil spot, where Northern Hemisphere tree species dominate. Paths through the Woodland Garden weave around the hillside, connecting the upper and lower gardens and overlooking the duck pond.
The picture-perfect duck pond is a delight with daylilies and giant 'rhubarb' surrounding it, and waterlilies floating on its surface. A peaceful and scenic place to take photos and paint.
South East Asian Gully
Vibrant Camellias are the dominant feature of this gully, while a wide variety of other species from South East Asia, Japan and the Korean Peninsula are displayed here.
