I took a stroll around Lavender Bay the other morning with the specific purpose of ending up at ‘Wendy’s Secret Garden‘.
Wendy Whiteley’s vision all those years ago to rehabilitate what was once disused land (and dumping ground), owned by the New South Wales State Railways, has resulted in a wonderful space for all to enjoy – a community treasure; its waterside location is both enclosed, sheltered and inviting.
I think I should try to return earlier in the day next time; it was about half-nine by the time I arrived and the sun was shining upon the clear blue-skied day, which although superb and full of feel-good (literally!) doesn’t always make for interesting photos. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the experience of being surrounded by all that green, and viewing the city from the northern vantage point.
