Finding Family

One woman's obsession with family history.

Historic Gardens of Perth

From 13 – 23 May 2011 the Western Australian branch of the Australian Garden History Society is presenting a photographic exhibition in the Perth Town Hall entitled ‘Historic Gardens of Perth’.

By highlighting many largely unknown gardens, the exhibition will provide an overview of horticulture practice and the changing trends that resulted from the growth and development of the city. As well as showcasing private gardens, it will look at the role played by certain public officials and municipal gardeners, who, in guiding plant selection and garden design, laid the foundation of the current city streetscapes.

The exhibition aims to promote the importance of parks and gardens in the history of Perth. Admission is free and the exhibit will be open from 10am to 4pm daily.

More information about the exhibit can be found on the Australian Garden History Society website or the Show Me Perth website.
