New Moss Creek Garden
Open for Autumn Festival 2019

Mayfield has become famous for our cool climate plants and gardens inspired by those found throughout the world. The New Moss Creek Garden (Open for April 2019) is a tribute to Australia, the great rediscovery of the Wollemi pine in 1994 was just down the road at Wollemi National Park. The ancient history of the earth on which it stands. Nicknamed the 'dinosaur tree' or 'living fossil,' the Wollemi pine is one of the most significant botanical discoveries of recent years. Native Australian plants complement the rock formations and the Wollemi pine, which was propagated at Blue Mountains Botanical Garden.

Moss Creek Garden also features:

  • Polystichum ferns - a soft field fern
  • Dicksonia antarctica - man ferns
  • Blechnum nudum ferns - also known as fishbone waterferns and found in the rainforest and eucalyptus forests of eastern Australia
  • Mosses - encouraged to grow over the rocks and ground around the creek
