The Jewel in the Crown
The Gargarro Botanic Garden will see the creation of a unique and world class botanical installation, representing the premier regional botanic gardens destination in Australia, and the jewel in the crown of the Campaspe region.
It will be bold, it will be beautiful and it will exhibit best practice from a design, sustainability and indigenous plantings perspective.
The region's rich history will be woven through the stories shared in this unique setting; making future generations proud to visit and cherish Gargarro.
Our Vision for Gargarro
The design reflects the dry landsapes of the region, celebrating our native flora and precious water resources.
The garden will be based on a multi-sensory design theme, overlaid with a celebration of Australia’s indigenous history.
The design pivots around an interplay of social areas, water tributes, interactive trails, and a showcase of native vegetation.
The garden will nurture the local and visiting community;
connecting people through the growth of a beautiful space for recreation, celebration and education.
An all abilities access space, designed to enjoy relaxation, appreciate nature, and learn about our history.
An incredible feature of the space is a custom soundshell
amphitheatre, designed to bring people together through live
music and events.
Gargarro with the Murray River, the Echuca Wharf, the Gunbower Flora exploration, the Kyabram Fauna Park, the Rushworth Historical & Nature Trails and the Barmah Forest will form the Campaspe History & Nature Trail, a significant tourist attraction.
Gargarro will also form an important connection between the botanic gardens in Bendigo & Shepparton, forming an excellent botanic offering for garden enthusiasts.
