We are a non-profit community organisation developing, maintaining and operating a multiple award-winning rhododendron garden. The garden is widely known internationally and its unique design makes it one of Australia's major rhododendron gardens. See over 22,000 rhododendrons and other select plants set among 11ha with a series of "countries" from which the wild rhododendrons originate, within authentic built environments. As a gardening volunteer, you will be assisting by:

  • protecting the Rhododendron genus
  • basic landscaping
  • raking, weeding
  • establishing new areas and maintaining existing beds If this appeals to you, express an interest today and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
