Mawarra by Edna Walling: Trees, Steps and Stones

Mawarra is an example of Edna Walling when given a blank canvas and a gentle slope at Sherbrooke in the Dandenongs in Victoria. 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.

Trees
The standout feature of Mawarra are the tall amazing trees – planted to display the colors of Autumn and with different specimens everywhere.
Steps and Stones
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”.
