How to get here
Bike or walk
We have a bike rack to secure your bicycle and there are different ways to cycle to the garden depending on which direction you're coming from. Plan your journey with the Warrnambool City Council's Sustainable Transport Travel Map.
The Tower Square or Allansford bus route will get you to the closest bus stop to the garden on Nicholson street, next to Warrnambool East Primary School. Head east on Nicholson St toward Flaxman St, away from the Fletcher Jones silver ball then hear right at Flaxman street along Bostock St. There is a small path between two houses which cuts up the hill to Emma Avenue, continue to the left up Emma Avenue until you reach the Princes Highway/Raglan Parade. Turn right at the highway to follow it along til near the intersection, please take care crossing the highway as it is a busy road. Continue along Derby St (past the amazing old bus stop mural) and you will see the garden when you reach Grieve Street.
A V/Line service operates from Melbourne, Geelong to Warrnambool. For more public transport details check out the Public Transport Victoria website.
Warrnambool Radio Taxis can arrange transfers to the garden via phone on (03) 6208 1060 or 131 008.
We're conveniently located just off of the Princes Highway/Raglan Parade with ample free parking out the front of our fences. Don't drive inside the gates, even if they are open to maintain the safety of our members.
Our site was an abandoned quarry so there is still some difficult to navigate areas, but the areas closest to the entrance including the bushfood area, herb patch and HUB can be accessed via wheelchair or walker. We have an accessible toilet in the HUB. Please let us know if you are planning a visit and we can discuss specific access questions.
