The Australian Garden is based on the multi award-winning Australian Garden at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Cranbourne. All the plants featured are Australian native plants, including the turf. The garden tells a symbolic story of the journey of water through Australia’s arid outback eastward to the urbanised coast. The dry riverbed path, outback flowering plants, salt pan and water hole represent the arid outback. Water appears, bubbling up from the artesian basin, and flows along the water feature to the coast in the culturally significant shape of a hunting boomerang. The water reappears as a cascade down the rusted steel gorge wall, finally disappearing into underground aquifers to begin the journey again.
