Mawarra

Mawarra is an example of Edna Walling when given a blank canvas and a gentle slope at Sherbrooke in the Dandenongs in Victoria. It is 3 acres with a large “manor” house built in 1932. Originally known as “The Grove” –  is recognised as Edna Walling’s most famous garden.
The galleries below show the garden in mid-April in the most wonderful autumn colors- have a look at the wonderful trees and the steps and stones that take you there.
In the centre is the sweeping circular stone staircase leading to the octagonal reflecting pond at the bottom, described by Edna as “a symphony of steps and beautiful trees”.
