The garden is a combined effort which is being funded by a Port Stephens Council grant of $6,000.

It is anticipated that the project will take around 5-6 months to complete.

Peter North, President of the Rotary Club of Salamander Bay, told News Of The Area, “Rotary will be providing the labour and they will liaise with the Salvation Army for their expertise.

“We have engaged a landscaper Jane Parker who has designed the garden and the first working bee will be held on 7 October.

“You don’t have to be a Roatarian to be involved in helping create the garden,” he said.

The Club has several projects at the moment and Peter is very pleased that the roundabout project [at the entry to the Bay] is going ahead.

The roundabout will be subjected to a two week makeover which will enhance the entrance to the Bay.

This particular project has taken a great deal of work to get off the ground, however the work is now signed off by both Council and RMS.

Bunnings at Taylors Beach are also on board to supply the plants which will be sustainable and low growing.

The 30 metre roundabout cannot have any features or sculptures due to RMS requirements however Council will be installing signage which welcomes people to the Bay and Worimi Country.

  1. Hello,
    What a great idea , congratulations to all concerned.
    Just a suggestion for future projects on planting out to beautify Port Stephens, our Libaray at Tomaree is in desperate need of new plants, mulching and a watering system!!
