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.

Public Transport

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.

Parking

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. 

Accessibility 

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.

Garden calendar and activities

Our working bees are the first and third Saturday of each month. Join anytime between 9am and 12:30pm to experience a range of garden activities with support from our site manager. Sign on before 10:30am to be counted for our free communal lunch.

 

Workshops are open to members and community to learn skills for growing, storing, sharing and cooking organic food that we produce on site. Our program is guided by and inspire the values of self sufficiency, sustainability, and food production that is friendly to animals, humans and our planet

 

If you would like to host a workshop at our garden, get in touch with the details and we can discuss options.
