Seniors in the Garden

The Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden, a 132 ha bushland reserve just off Mona Vale Road at St Ives is a favourite place for picnics, bird watching, outdoor family events or simply communing with nature.
Featuring pavillions, walking tracks, shelter sheds, the Gardens showcase the glorious flora and fauna of Sydney's sandstone bushland.
The Seniors in the Garden program includes the Aboriginal Culture Walk, Bushland Discovery, and for those with lower mobility, Bush Senses provides a more gentle Australian bushland experience.
For groups with their own minibus, you can gain access to some of the more remote treasures and secret places of the gardens. An experienced ranger will guide thes tours and provide interesting and informative commentary on the heritage of the Garden.
An outreach program is the Garden's Bush to Bed. A ranger will bring a selection of friendly bushland animals and fragrant plants to the residents of nursing homes.
