|Our visit marks the 18th anniversary of Mt Penang Gardens.
Opened in November 2003, Mt Penang Gardens is considered an enduring and radical contribution to public garden design in Australia. Its distinctive design by Anton James sets it apart from the traditional botanical garden. His garden within a garden produces an understated landscape that is less manicured and in a constant state of being. It continues to evolve today.
12 unique garden rooms, sculptures and cascading waterways.

|25 Jun, Sat 9:47AM||5 Lands Walk: Mcmasters Beach to Terrigal Surf Club( info only)|
|This is for your information only. I am not leading. Public transport times are also suggestion only. You can you anytime. When you arrive at McMaster Beach, there will be marshalls and you just follow instruction( or the crowd). The 5 Lands Walk is a physical, spiritual and cultural journey. A gift to you from the communities and sponsors of the Central Coast. A place where no one is excluded. A place where family, friends and the wider community are encouraged to celebrate life, have fun and connect to our deep Aboriginal history, European settlement, and who we are today. In doing so we take a step to create a more harmonious and inclusive society on the Central Coast and beyond. The 5 Lands Walk is a day-long festival held on the Saturday closest to the winter solstice when the whales, a significant totem of the Darkinjung people, are migrating north, along 10 km of spectacular coastline.
In 2006 we were inspired by Italy's Cinque Terra, but we created our own uniquely Australian event, a collaboration between the Aboriginal and broader communities, to connect people to people and people to place. We've been improving it every year since.
2021 will see many old favourites plus some new features and events. Roughly 22 000 people are estimated to join us this year, so be prepared to be inspired.
Coffee available at McMasters Beach. BYO lunch or buy on way.
To register There are several long steady climbs, up and down, and a couple of short steep sections with steps. There’s even a boggy patch to add interest.
