Why Wendy Whitlely's Secret Garden inspires me...

Wendy Whitlely's Secret Garden Lavender Bay, Sydney

Over a period of 16 years, Wendy Whiteley, ex wife of artist Brett Whiteley, has transformed a derelict railway wasteland adjoining her Lavender Bay home, into an oasis of greenery, complete with picnic tables, terraces and an assortment of sculptures.

Whilst the land remains in Crown ownership, Wendy continues to develop and maintain the "Secret Garden" providing a place of great beauty for the benefit of the broader community.
