Open gardens at Rupanyup

Wimmera residents and visitors can enjoy five diverse gardens during an open garden day at Rupanyup on Sunday.
The event runs from 10am to 4pm and sites range from compact town gardens to expansive rural properties. The event costs $20 a person and participants need to register at Rupanyup Public Memorial Hall.
Proceeds go to West Wimmera Health Service’s Rupanyup Nursing Home.
A garden in Stewart Street is a ‘treasure trove of natives, roses, irises, bulbs, salvias, crepe myrtles, perennials, fruit trees and vege gardens’, created from a ‘wasteland of rubbish’.
‘Milltown’, on Ballantine Road, is a ‘relaxed garden’ featuring a casual mixture of lawn, Australian natives and English plants, while a garden in Cromie Street is a rose-lover’s delight.
On Florences Road, visitors will see an array of plants designed to survive Wimmera extremes. The site of this garden originally contained a boundary rider’s hut as part of Warranooke Station, with buloke trees the only vegetation.
The final garden, ‘Kinglangley’ features many traits of an Edna Walling garden.
Visitors can enjoy natives, lemon-scented gums, stone areas, meandering paths and garden rooms.
People can call Sandra Loats on 0427 855 136 for more information.
