Michael McCoy: Of Timelessness & Moment

One of the real super-powers of gardens is to have one foot in eternity and one foot firmly in this very second.  They call us to stop and engage – to seize the moment – while both acknowledging the past and wooing us into thinking about, and planning for, future joys.

Michael McCoy (The Gardenist and presenter of ‘Dream Gardens’ on ABC TV) takes us on a journey of gardens worldwide that buck the trend towards low maintenance/low reward planting, and work towards making every moment count.

Pre-purchase your ticket online to ensure you have easy access to the Duneira garden and parking on this day.

Simon Rickard: Asian Plants at Duneira

Duneira has an interesting collection of Asian plants. From plants used in traditional Chinese medicine, to trees of economic importance, to purely ornamental shrubs and flowers, Duneira’s Asian plant collection dates back to the original garden planting of the nineteenth century, and contains trees of national significance in Australia.

Simon will take you on a tour of the Duneira garden. Wear suitable shoes and meet at the front entrance of Duneira.
