Designed by Phillip Johnson, this garden reminds us that nature is the perfect reference for sustainable design, imperative in the twenty first century.

Trailfinders Australian Garden presented by Fleming’s aims to challenge conventional garden design, whilst incorporating best environmental practice in an urban environment.

Imperatives in the garden design include water capture and conservation, site-defined plant selection, promotion of biodiversity and habitat creation, the use of recycled materials and solar power, and bushfire suppression systems. The result is a beautiful oasis that revives the soul, and assists in rebuilding our fragile environment.

The focal points of the landscape are the Billabong, gorge and waterfalls, as well as the Studio perched on the edge of the gorge. The Studio roof includes solar panels with the capacity to generate enough power for the whole landscape.
