Ken Taber art studio and gallery
Ken Taber Water Garden

The garden surrounding Ken Taber's house and studio was started in 1991 and takes up much of the five and half acres. Set in a low lying area the garden features ten dams and ponds with six islands, many bridges and jetties. Along with native flora the main feature is the many palms, ferns and water plants that go to make this garden such a haven for a wide range of birds and native fauna.

The Ken Taber Studio and Gallery are located amid a well established water garden.

"Shimmering sheets of water, trickling streams, ponds embroided with lotus flowers and water lillies. Bridges emerge from the swampland bird sanctuary where artist Ken Taber has created an evocative garden. Richly pleated palms and tree ferns add texture." (Australian Open Garden Book)
