Open Garden

Australia's Open Garden Scheme


Ian and Judy Wintle’s

‘Giving Garden’

 Carlton Court, Birkdale

Come spend an hour or two or more!!

‘Brisbane’s best visitor friendly garden’

It’s worth the visit as there’s always something new’

It’s worth taking the time to visit this wonderful ‘one-acre’ sub tropical garden paradise. This may be the only garden in Australia in which exotic tropical fruit trees provide the shade canopy.  A large collection of rare and unusual plants provide the under story plantings. This garden gives immense pleasure, relaxation and tranquillity just by being within its beautiful grounds. The opening is a garden experience; it is truly a gardener’s garden and will help you in your selection of plants to turn your Garden into a similar paradise. Homegrown plant sales specializing in beautiful named bromeliads. Owners are only too willing to give free garden information and advice. Lunches, home cooked delights and refreshments provided by the Capalaba ‘Lions Club’. This is a garden that you can easily spend several hours in and walk away relaxed and with new ideas for your garden. There is always something new in this garden and previous visitors certainly will not be disappointed in 2008 with a major front garden expansion and of course lots of new plantings. If you are interested in plants, landscaping and gardening or  just want a day out in a beautiful garden then don’t miss it.
