Box Garden

The Box Garden is one of the most densely planted areas in the Australian Garden.  Between the cracks and crevices in the rocks, you will find lots of beautiful, delicate little plants. 

The Box Garden is a basically a rockery where there are numerous nooks and crannies in which flowering understory plants are able to grow amongst the trunks of the Box trees. A number of these understorey plants are short lived and require regular replacement. 

In the Box Garden, we explore the contribution that artists have made to our understanding of the Australian bush. Nestled into this garden is a memorial to Kevin Taylor, an esteemed Australian landscape architect and one of the principal designers of the Australian Garden.
