Banksia Bend is a magnificent country property in the glorious Yarra Valley wine-growing district. The owner, Rosemary Simpson, came to Banksia Bend in 2000 and later commissioned distinguished landscape designer Phillip Johnson (winner of the gold medal Chelsea 2013), to create a rock and water garden. Rosemary’s passion is for sustainable gardens in dry and arid conditions and preserving what little water there is here in Australia. The garden consists of mainly Australian native plants and features three sculptures by renowned Australian artists.


The garden is open by appointment and for group bookings only.
