An Australian Open Garden

Wayval Views, Queensland
7 Jan 2015 | From Russell of Australia

This 3-4 acres open terraced garden is located in the heart of the Lockyer Valley, approximately half-way between Toowoomba and Ipswich. It was previously grazing land with only one tree. Now the garden showcases a vast range of trees and shrubs in a beautiful balance of natives and exotics. Murraya, lilly-pilly, box, duranta and privet used as hedges and topiary. Grafted weeping grevilleas. Rock-walled fernery, old slab hut, pond, bird aviary. Glorious panoramic views of the surrounding mountain ranges and valleys. It also includes slab huts, a stone-walled fern house, arbours, gazebos, rustic sculpture, a waterfall and rocky watercourse, bridges, pond and timber boardwalk, cactus garden, orchard and vegetable garden.
