To reach the garden, walk from the pedestrian crossing at the intersection of Lavender and Walker Streets, head south down the stairs towards the harbour and the garden is about 50 metres down the hill on your left . Volunteer gardeners are welcome on (usually) the first Saturday of the month, for a morning of whatever gardening activity you enjoy. Contact the Secretary of the Lavender Bay Precinct at lavenderbayprecinct@gmail.com for more details.
