Situated on the west of the lake is our lovely wedding ceremony lawns. An ornate gazebo framed by two Chinese tallow trees creates a the perfect backdrop for that perfect day.

Removed from the hustle and bustle and set amongst the gardens with room to relax, these lawns have seen many a bride and groom exchange their vows in front of family and friends. There is ample space for family and friends to gather to witness the occasion and some beautiful photo settings throughout the gardens.

Our latest revovations to the wedding lawns sees an arbour at the entrance to the lawn area leading down to the gazebo. With new planted trees, vines and lawns top-dressed this area should be looking stunning for the first of the spring wedding bookings.

Knowing where and what to plant in your garden can be a daunting task for most.  Riverside Gardens Garden Centre offers a garden design service which can ultimately save you time, heart ache and dollars.  A well designed and maintained garden can add thousands of dollars to the value of your real estate, as well as allowing you the pleasure of enjoying your own bit of paradise. 


Banksia the cat, Charlie the cockatoo, our VW Lawn Beetle and Henry the male model are all sort after celebrities at Riverside Gardens Garden Centre.  Banksia, an unusually coloured tortoise shell cat,  sure knows where to position herself for an extra dose of customer's affections. 

Charlie the cockatoo is over 40 years old and loves his share of the attention.  His dancing talents are one of his biggest show off acts and his shrill singing demands your attention if he thinks he's being ignored.  Being a well known identity at Riverside Gardens for more than 30 years, parents bring their children in to meet Charlie, having themselves been introduced to Charlie as children.

Henry, on the other hand, is a very quiet natured security guard, often taking people by surprise as he stands in silence in one of his many disguises.  Keep an eye out for Henry because he's sure to make you gasp when you catch his watchful eye.

Most photographed of all is our VW Lawn Beetle who adorns our front courtyard.  Covered completely in 'Ideal Grass', our Lawn Beetle (Bug) receives endless comments and features in many of our visitors holiday pictures.
