The Friends of Mrs York's Garden are inviting the community to join together in a day of celebrations for our Bicentenary on Saturday 10th April 10 am- 3pm. The iconic headland Garden provides a beautiful natural environment with endemic native gardens & bushland, overlooking stunning river and ocean views. It is a location where we can remember that the Birpai nation lived a bountiful life, where early convict settlement flourished in an emerging Australia, with timber & shipping industries prominent. The many heritage sites within & nearby the Garden will form the basis for raising awareness, educating and celebrating the journey of 200 years of our history. We are very privileged to have the Together as One Sculpture in the Garden and see it as a focus for integrating relevant activities, including: -Garden/Heritage tours with information related to nearby historical points such as Government House, Allman Hill graves & mill, Soldiers Garrison, Showground, Together as One Sculpture, Gaol Point & historic well. -Food & drink options-Morning tea, incorporating bush tucker, BBQ, soft drinks or bring your own picnic. -Trade Table goods & memorabilia. -Cultural activities & displays, dance, costumes. -Entertainment- music, story telling, re enactments. This historic precinct will offer many vantage points for people to settle for activities and/or for quiet enjoyment.
