“Secluded in the folds and plains and mountain forests of rural Australia, or by walls and protective foliage in the cities are those magnificent oases of retreat and content – the great gardens of Australia.
For a country so often depicted as climatically harsh and horticulturally drab, Australia is rich in verdant garden landscapes, as it is in extraordinary houses and homesteads.
They reflect, variously, the yearning for ‘home’ and the soft green landscape owners determined to surround themselves with ‘civilising influences’, or the need to display as a mark of position.”
