OUR FAIRY FOREST & MORE!

Nothing better than a childs imagination! so inspired by my little Granddaughters- Bella & Alice- we are powering ahead with plantings- and there will be a MAGIC GATEWAY- Twinkling Fairy lights- and lots to stir the imaginations of many little people! We look forward to giving all our younger visitors a very special experience- to take away from Bony Mountain every year! There will be little girls in their elemant -in their fairy costumes-Tu Tus and no doubt many wonderful photos!  

CREATING OUR FESTIVAL GARDENS 2019

Well I have been looking forward to getting my teeth into this project. We have new Tanks -and they are full already- it has been desperately dry here (as you can see) but going ahead with the gardens & landscaping anyway. I've always had big spaces to work with- and always wanted more?  so an almost unlimited space will really test my creative skills. So I can really go to town now -with trees- shrubs- Banks- maybe even a Water feature? I originally planned a big eco dam-right where (King Parrot Camp) is -but needless to say it would take up prime realeastate ? Nevertheless it is an exciting project & anyone who wants to come & help- to plan-to plant- you are most welcome- Volunteers are very welcome!  I have already had plants donated- some Iris's- some bits & pieces- but we will need so much - must be hardy though?  Here are some photo's of our humble beginnings! 

  • OUR LITTLE GARDENER!

    Thanks to Barry & Julie for donating some little people-ornaments & bits & pieces-most appreciated.

  • OUR TEE PEES-

    The kids loved our Tee pees- all lit up at night- beside the Fairy Garden - and a nice big Sandpit-

  • FAIRY GARDEN

    Early days yet- special thanks to Jules- who was amazing? Our magic Mushrooms- I purchased locally- but Silver Pots- little pathways- Jules went to so much effort!

  • OUR FESTIVAL GARDENS

    River grass- Azalea- African Daisies- Jules - great big red pot! It was a tough call planning a garden with everything so dry- trying to bring some green to a dust bowl?

  • FAIRY FOREST SIGN

    Our signage was wonderful this year- big thanks to Sandy -and to Jules- both great Volunteers!

  • OUR FAIRY FOREST

    This was a bit of a stretch this year-but over time I'm sure we will create the illusion of a real forest !

  • OUR TIPUANA TREE

    Have planted a few of these around the Festival site- so quick growing- hardy- the birds love them- a Legume actually- so totally edible! they are a pretty picture on a dry landscape- but have powered since the rain .

  • OUR BUSH CAFE

    We have several eatery's here- The Shack- Bush Camp Cafe- and Wallaby Cafe- as well as the CWA Tea House- which has the best cakes/slices/scones-all home made!
