NATURE TOURISM AT ITS BEST IN VICTORIA’S WEST COUNTRY
TIMANDRA – a garden like no other!
Timandra is unique – it is a garden with a difference.Why, you might ask?
Unlike other gardens that tend to be focussed at eye level or lower, Timandra is full of trees.
The vertical aspect is captured throughout so much of the garden, giving the illusion in especially the middle section, of being a rainforest. This canopy is mostly composed of the Australian gum tree, which is home to many of our furry friends – koalas and possums. And of course the bird life in these trees in mind-blowing at certain times of the day.
Timandra is a garden full of plants. As a sustainable garden, these plants have been selected to work with the existing soil of the site. So there is a lot of horticultural knowledge behind Timandra to enable such a massive array of plants to be used without soil changes.
And of course there is the design component of Timandra. Alison (owner and designer) is a multi-award winning landscape designer, with industry awards from both South Australia and Victoria. Her award entries have been pitted against the best landscape design companies in the country, making Alison also one of the very best sustainable landscape designers in Australia. A book will be coming in due course to highlight the REAL sustainable garden.
Timandra is a show-piece for Alison’s love of all things natural. It is a modest garden of simple, tho according to many, great beauty. Timandra is proof that simplicity is the key to the best designs and experiences that life has to offer.
Timandra is a garden for adults and children alike. We welcome all to our little bit of paradise.
It is to be found at 82 Windham Street [Princes Highway through town] Narrawong, 3285, Victoria.
