Pre-Conference Garden Tour 2021

Friday 19 March 2021

ALC delegates only

So what does a 2021 garden look like? This year’s tour focuses on urban retreats in Melbourne’s suburban gardens. Urban living will be on display with six distinctly different spaces to make up this year’s itinerary. These gardens are all designed to ‘adapt’ to their owners needs within set spaces. They include:

City garden designed by Fiona Brockhoff – a series of compact courtyards using minimalism to maximise space and urban refuge.

Rooftop community garden in St Kilda – a deliberately unpretentious, ‘un-designed’ communal space that cares for itself and for its 23 groups of residents.

Eckersley Garden Architecture garden – both an engineering feat and a breathtaking, plant driven landscape that tumbles to its Yarra River border.

Sharon Harris’ own garden – a typical suburban backyard transformed into a plant lover’s paradise where rare plants, Argentinean and Tandoori ovens, ornamentals, edibles, sculpture, pots and poultry all harmoniously hold sway.

Mediterranean style garden designed by Paul Bangay – a beautifully proportioned Mediterranean inspired garden where architecture and landscape read as one, complemented by a climate smart plant palette.

With such an inspirational range of landscapes, you will be energised and inspired by the diversity of design and directions in which gardens take us. We are privileged to share these spaces with you and encourage you to book early as the tour usually books out during Early Bird Registrations.
