Read more about each garden in the factsheet.
Some of the gardeners and gardens also feature in our habitat gardens video series.

The Cromarty garden

With just under 20 acres on the outskirts of Lavington, Olwyn and Dave wanted a garden that was low maintenance, with low water needs and glimpses of snow capped mountains.

The Datson garden

It’s easy to see why Glenda and Bernie’s Baranduda garden is described as the best habitat garden in Albury-Wodonga – not only is it gorgeous, more than 90 bird species have been spotted here over the years.

The Diver garden

When the Divers moved into their West Albury house six years ago, Joanne wanted a green garden with predominantly natives that flowered year-round and attracted wildlife.

The Lehmann garden

What really sets Chris and Christine Lehmann’s Baranduda garden apart from the rest is the number and variety of nest boxes.

The Russell garden

When Clare and Vern moved onto a suburban block in West Wodonga 22 years ago, they decided to plant a predominantly native garden as they both loved the native flowers and wanted ‘something different’.

The Sharp garden

Not only is Julianne and Greg Sharp’s West Wodonga garden breathtakingly beautiful, it was carefully designed with wildlife in mind.

The Shepherd garden

John and Jenny Shepherd’s garden in Thurgoona is remarkable for how quickly it’s grown. In just two years it went from a bare new block to a vibrant garden attracting 82 bird species.

The Thurley garden

If you were a bird looking for somewhere to eat, nest or breed in Glenroy, you’d fly straight to David and Sue Thurley’s garden.
